A booming trend in the food scene of nearly every major city for the past few years, food trucks have revolutionized the way we eat gourmet. Foodies and inspired chefs alike no longer feel limited to brick-and-mortar restaurants, and the relative ease at which one can enter into the restaurant industry is producing a flood of talent.
Helping to promote this ideological shift is Sacramento Mobile Foods Events, more commonly known as SactoMoFo. The group aims to level the restaurant playing field by hosting “street food events” throughout Sacramento, including the popular Food Truck Mania, a recurring event at local parks.
With an event scheduled at a different community park nearly every day of the month, Sacramentans can sample the finest mobile food the region has to offer—and with a constantly shifting lineup, a truck for every taste isn’t a stretch. The popular Food Truck Mania at McKinley park boasts a beer garden (with proceeds benefiting the Front Street Animal Shelter) live music and bounce houses—making for a tasty (and family-friendly) evening out.
