Pho tacos and Thai tea boba with milky popsicle swirl-ins? These things actually exist, thanks to Rakken and Pop’d Up. Here’s a quick little video to give you a taste of these bites and more from last weekend’s 626 Night Market held at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA.
With that, here’s my first-ever vlog episode, with more to come!
Other highlights included a craveworthy Hawaiian-inspired pineapple and bacon-wrapped “Terrier-ki” dog with wasabi mayo and a nori seaweed garnish from Tokyo Doggie Style, which was voted one of the top 6 food trucks in Los Angeles. I can see why, with not only their innovative Japanese fusion food truck creations, but also their stellar customer service!
Their buns are sourced straight from New England, and the care they put into crafting their food really shows. We also tried their “OG” fries, with kimchi, cheese, steak and caramelized onions. Sinfully delicious!
We also had shark tacos from La Sriracha Macha, with legal shark meat from Australia. The shark meat actually tasted like a mild, firm fish, and the Mexican Sriracha sauce was a nice complement to the taco. The pho tacos from Rakken (as seen in the video) were also moist, savory, complex, and actually tasted like pho in taco form!
Last but definitely not least, check out the Fruity Pebbles macaron ice cream sandwich from Dolcissimo Bakeshop! Vanilla ice cream and Fruity Pebbles-flecked giant macarons, rolled in some more of the sweet, colorful cereal for a crunch. It’s magical, unique and oh so delicious… like milk and cereal, in frozen, giant macaron form! It’s the stuff dreams are made of, people.
There are two more 626 night markets coming up this summer, so stay tuned by visiting the 626 Night Market website! Additionally, Monterey Park is having its inaugural night market this Friday, July 25. Check out the MPK Night Market website for more information. So many night markets, so much delicious food and fun to be had!
Speaking of which, check out the unique bites and foodie highlights from last month’s DTLA Night Market right here. Until next time, let’s all just admire this glorious macaron…
