Street Food Wedding!
I'm planning a ghetto (fabulous) wedding - and I'm looking for ideas.
I've hired KOGI to come and make tacos for dinner - but what can I have out in a buffet that kind of keeps with a LA Street Food theme? I think that bacon wrapped hot dogs may be a bit TOO street...
Any ideas for munchies? Any ideas for drinks?
Thanks so much!
sounds fun and yummy. for drinks perhaps jugs of aguas frescas, they are cheap and easy to make yourself. you could have bottles of alcohol on the side if people want to add that in if you're looking for alcoholic drinks as well. you could have fun with it and have little umbrellas and garnishes.
for munchies if this is an daytime ourdoor wedding, cups of cut up fruit mexican style with cucumber, jimaca, lime wedges, and spicy salt, with toothpicks. perfect refreshing snack for people to eat while standing. oh maybe small fruit kabobs with a lime and salting area.
chips and salsa, guacamole. since you're doing korean bbq maybe small egg rolls, wontons or taquitos, little spicy sausage or slices with picks.
KOGI does taro and lotus chips http://kogibbq.com/wp-content/uploads...
maybe you can find your own.
if you like fish some poke http://www.overlandmeatco.com/fresh_f...
or ceviche with the chips would be yummy. ceviche is easy to make, you may be able to get poke at an asian market.
I love the idea of the cucumber jicama lime! I would also like to vote for caipirinhas (cachaca, lime, sugar, ice). If you can get ahold of any small, delicious empanadas they are great finger-food too.
The In N Out tractor trailer is awesome, but over the top and a little bit NASCAR.
I fear bacon-wrapped hot dogs could be a scene-stealer.
Oh... and churros. Churros are perfect. Alas my favorite are Del Taco!
