626 Night Market

On my way to work on Friday (July 18), I was listening to Ryan Seacrest on Kiis Fm; he was talking about all the things to do in LA this weekend, and he mentioned the 626 Night Market (which I went to briefly last year), so I googled it to make sure it was still in the same place, and it was! Yay! The 626 Night Market is kind of like a street fair, but bigger, and kind of like a county fair, without the big rides; it’s Asian themed, so most of everything sold is Asian.

My best friend Andi, David and I ended up going to it that night. I love the Santa Anita Race Track, its so spacious so you don’t feel suffocated with all the people around you.  We arrived a little past 6, parking was easy and FREE!  You walk right up to the gates and the entrance fee is $3 (cheaper than last year). They had quirky little signs everywhere like this one:

We decided we first wanted to walk around so we could find out what we wanted to eat and not get stuffed. We ended up finding some really cool food trucks, although I was disappointing that Kogi wasn’t there! BOO!

We ended up deciding to eat from two trucks because they both seemed really yummy. From the Grilled-Cheese Truck,

David and I both ordered an easy Mac & Rib (macaroni & cheese & BBQ pork), he also ordered  a side of tater-tots! I shared mine with Andi because we found another truck that we wanted to try, Rice Balls of Fire,

where we ordered 3 Korean Tacos ( Spicy Pork, “Bulgogi” Rib-eye Steak, & Pork Belly). They were all pretty good, although the spicy pork was my favorite.

We sat around to eat and then realized that we didn’t get anything to drink! Everyone was walking around drinking from Mason Jars, and they looked like really cool fancy drinks so we went on a hunt for them.

 

It took us a while to find the place, Simpag Asia Indonesian Cafe, and turns out that everyone was drinking virgin cocktails!

They were sooooooo good. I had a Pineapple Mojito, Andi had a Singapore Sling and David had a Watermelon Lemonade… they were so yum!

We walked around and saw some really cool artists and start up companies like Bad Art Inc., Sean Boyce Studios and Gravity LA.

We found another food truck that was specifically for shaved ice called Fluff Ice. I ordered a fusion green tea fluff with red bean & mochi with condensed milk. I really like it but I do not like red beans though, everything else was really good.

By this time (9 pm), it started getting crowded with teenagers and young adults, so we decided to leave. Overall, this was a really fun event to go to. There’s tons to do and I had a lot of fun.

Ps. You can go August 15 & 16 & September 12 & 13!!!
