Last Sunday's brunch was one of a kind. Michael Davidson aka the GrilledCheezGuy, is the man Behind the Cart. In this event, he takes center stage as he hosts his 3rd pop-up brunch event. In this brunch, people didn't only taste his creation but also other mobile food entrepreneurs as well.

I'm digging the concept of this. No long lines, Not a lot of waiting. Unlike some food truck events where you waste your time falling in line and you don't get much information about what you are eating or the story behind it. Here, you get to sit, relax and enjoy your food in a restaurant style setting. It is designed so people can mingle, eat, learn and share stories from the people who make your food.

So it's a Bingo themed brunch. Each square with a different food vendor. This way the crowd gets regulated and that guests will have time to talk to the people behind the cart. And for those who gets BINGO, they get rewarded with Bacon Hot sauce! Perfect way to wake you up with a smile! There was also an unlimited supply of vitamin C for your champagne.
Here's the recap:

The Amazing food
|Eggs being sous vide to perfection|
These guys uses a more gastronomical approach to cooking. First time I've seen a Sous vide machine from a mobile food vendor. Maybe Liquid nitrogen is next???
|S+S Gastro Grub: slow cooked egg in a cauliflower puree with bacon.|
|El Taco Bike: Torta de Huevo - Scrambled eggs with chile and onions. Perfect hangover remedy.|
|Unique tea blends by Blank Tea. Sensual tea please!|
|Bacon + Mochi = Unreal|
|Bacon wrapped Mochi by Simply Mochi|
|Tea party? sandwiches made by Tea and Company|
|Pomegranate and lime by 23 monkeytree|
|In a Jam. Get it? The Jalapeno was my favorite but they were all good!|
|Bread pudding duo by Schulzies. Chocolate chunk and cranberry|
|Stone fruit Galette|
Honestly this event was very inspiring for me. Talking to all those people, learning and sharing their passion. Most of them have a regular day job and they still find time to do what they love to do. I believe BTC achieved its purpose. This brunch became a medium for food vendors and locals to interact, support each other, be inspired, be connected and most of all have a great time.
