Freddy's Food Court, a weekly food truck event at Neighborhood Christian Fellowship in Covina, CA to check out their culinary offerings. It was a nice community gathering with food, karaoke, face painting, and families.
I usually like to see which food trucks have the long lines; it usually is an indicator that the food is good. One of the trucks with a big crowd was the Tornado Potato truck. It wasn't french fries, it was a different spin on it.
What they do is skewer a whole spiral cut potato on a stick and deep fry it. You can also substitute a zucchini for the potato or stick a sausage within the potato spiral. Then you have a choice of flavor seasonings from garlic parmesan to ranch; we tried the jalapeno flavor.
Being french fry fans, we enjoyed it. It tasted like a hybrid between a potato chip and french fry. I appreciated the creativity behind it. They took something regular (such as french fries) and produced it in a way that people haven't seen before.
It inspired me to challenge myself to be more creative. How can I see what I usually encounter in life in a whole different way? That'll be my brain teaser for today.
