If you think that the food cart craze has only hit large metropolitan areas along the likes of Portland, San Francisco and San Jose, think again! Palo Alto is drawing some amazingly talented chefs that have opted to hit the road to bring tasty cuisine directly to their fans and followers on social channels like twitter and facebook, catering specialty events and venturing where gastro options may be lacking.

The Peninsula/Silicon Valley and Palo Alto in particular is prime territory for food carts to feed hungry students and plugged-in techies that are short on time for lunch or opt to bring dinner home to the family (many let you order take-out online!)

Recently, Palo Alto’s Edgewood Plaza made news with its new organized Foodie event called, “Edgewood Eats”.  7 Gourmet (and well known) trucks transformed the vacant shopping lot , serving up dinner to the tune of  around 350 people!  The Plaza launched the weekly event on September 13th, but plans to scale back in winter months, only to ramp back up again in warmer weather.  You can follow the event at Palo Alto has also made Edgewood Eats a favorite on facebook for your convenience.

“… Among the vendors at Edgewood Plaza on Monday were Curry Up Now with its Indian wraps and rice bowls; MoGo BBQ with its Korean-inspired Mexican food; and RoliRoti with its spit-roasted chicken and potatoes. Kara’s Cupcakes was there to satiate those craving something sweet. –”
