Food truck fiesta coming today to Capitol

Let's set aside for a second all this Debbie Downer talk of Sacramento ranking second to last in a national dining survey, not to mention all the recent restaurant shut-downs, for something much more fun: Food trucks! A gang of food trucks and mobile vendors will be parked at the California State Capitol (10th St. between L and N streets) from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. today. They're gathering for El Grito, an early commemoration of Mexican Independence Day. Because no matter if a food truck is peddling burgers or waffles, the roots of mobile food can be found in the humble taco truck. Here's the lineup of vendors:

1. MiniBurger
2. Wicked 'Wich
3. La Piedad
4. La Mex
5. Chando's
6. Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen
7. Corn Cake/BBQ
8. Mama Kims
9. VolksWaffle
10. Emma's Tamales
11. Pizza Company
12. Fat Face

In other food truck news, we're hearing that food truck ordinances may be coming up soon in front of the Sacramento City Council. Stay tuned for more information on that. Meanwhile, see you in line tonight for Chando's and more.
