Hi San Diego people. I have a food trailer in Washington State called StrEAT food, and am coming to your fair city next week on vacation. We recently lost our home, and our pets, in a fire. The aftermath of which has taken a lot of my time as well as my ability to focus on my business. I need a break, and some inspiration. What should I do while there? I would like to eat from as many trucks and trailers as I can find of course, as well as any gems that are a must not miss. Thank you for any advice you may have.

    Not sure if the OP is still here, and the weather may be detrimental to finding a foodie truck, but these links can help track down 3 that I know of:

      Sorry about your loss.

      Try the taco truck on 35th and El Cajon Blvd. Great fish tacos for .99 and they come with a cup of fish consume.

        MIHO gastrotruck. You need to look on their website or tweet, because there are changes in where they are daily - catering a lot of holiday parties.

          Are you planning a trip to LA? The food truck scene up there is phenomenal.

            I had originally planned that, but I had been saving tips from the trailer for just such a purpose. Learned a big lesson in keeping cash around the house. So not this trip I'm afraid.

            do not miss Copper Chimney truck--only problem is that it's only out on Fri nights and all day Saturday. do a search on the board and you'll find reviews and Alan's cell phone #.
