Eat in San Jose: 333 Truck


Beer Battered Fish Tacos

I recently had the opportunity to try 333 Truck, a food truck that serves the South and East Bay through Off The Grid. They serve tacos and burritos filled with Mexican, Korean, or Indian food. What's really cool is that you can mix and match your tacos. You can pick a Carne Asada, a Lamb Curry, and a Spicy BBQ Chicken taco and call it a day.

I had the Beer Battered Fish Tacos. Even though I'm not much of a taco fan, theirs were pretty good. They were fried perfectly and didn't taste too heavy. It was prepared minutes before I ate it, making all the ingredients very fresh. The juice from the lime brought all the flavors together and gave it a tanginess I appreciate.

Next time I stop by, I'll try their vegetarian taco with black beans or one with chicken tikka.

This photo was taken on a Nexus 5 and looks this good. Isn't that crazy? I'd say so.

Eat in SF: Dynamo Donut + Coffee


Maple Glazed Bacon Apple Donut

After hearing about Dynamo Donut + Coffee for years, I finally visited their Mission location on 24th and Hampshire last weekend before heading over to the San Francisco Street Food Festival. It was definitely worth the wait. You can tell each donut was made by a passionate and talented pastry chef at the helm, who in this case is Sara Spearin.

I tried the Maple Glazed Bacon Apple donut, which seemed like one of the must-try options according to users on Yelp. This raised donut lived up to my expectations and then some. For a morning treat covered in frosting and bacon, it was surprisingly light. The frosting was sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. Although I'm no baconholic, I actually would want a little more bacon to truly bring out its distinct flavor. Overall, this donut had the perfect balance between sweet and savory. I would gladly try it again soon.

The next time I stop by, I'll have the Chocolate Rose or even one of their gluten-free options like the "I'm Not a Gluten Chocolate with Raspberry Black Pepper Glaze." Basically, I'll have the chocolate, please!

Have you ever visited Dynamo? What's your favorite donut?
