The Sacramento Mobile Food Festival - a.k.a. SactoMoFo - is coming April 30 at Fremont Park (16th and Q streets, Sacramento) and has landed some of the biggest names in gourmet food trucks. Among them: Spencer on the Go, the San Francisco food truck as featured on cable TV's "Great Food Truck Race," which specializes in French food (escargot lollipops, anyone?). The popular Chariman Bao's Bun Truck from the Bay Area will also be in board. Other confirmed vendors include:

- Curry Up Now (Indian street food)
- Mini Burger (Sacramento's first gourmet food truck)
- Seoul on Wheels (Korean eats)
- Red Truck (Truckee-based food truck)
- Hapa SF (Filipino food)
- Happy Go Lucky (vegan cuisine)
- La Piedad (beloved Sacramento taco truck)
- Little Green Cyclo (Vietnamese street food)
- Fat Face (Davis sandwich mecca)
... and Whole Foods Market!

The impetus of this festival is to show that Sacramentans are hungry for food truck culture, despite strict city ordinances that have prevented this national trend from taking hold in Sacramento.

On a related note, Mini Burger will make its debut Saturday at the Make-A-Wish Winter Wine & Food Fest at the Sacramento Convention Center. In the following days, the Mini Burger truck will start rolling through Sacramento with its menu of burgers and made-from-scratch sides. How will Mini Burger fare with the current city ordinances, which prevent food trucks from staying in business districts for more than 30 minutes? Stay tuned for more on that ...
