Plant-based Seabirds Truck Now Serving Potato-Tempeh Taquitos

The Seabirds Truck, a solid Southern California-based competitor from season two of the Food Network show The Great Food Truck Race, has been serving a locally sourced, fresh and organic menu of deliciousness for some time now.

Their latest limited-time menu offering comes in the form of Potato-Tempeh Taquitos. The $6 gluten-free dish comes with 3 hand rolled and fried tacos served with chipotle sour cream. Tempeh is a traditional soy product originating from Indoensia, similar to a firm veggie patty material.

The menu item won’t be on the truck for much longer, so if you’re in the Orange County-area, might want to try and make a visit!


The Great Food Truck Race — Season 2 [Ep. 1, 2, 3 Recap]

With episode 3 of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race aired, wrapped, and ready for spoilers, we are now privy to the next truck that will not be receiving the show’s $100,000 grand prize. Los Angeles, CA-based Cuban food truck Cafe Con Leche dropped to last place in the show, being edged out by fellow Southern California truck Seabirds. Being in last placed by the end of the show resulted in the spunky Cuban truck having to pack up and go home.

For yet another week, Orange County-based The Lime Truck topped this week’s sales challenge.

For those who missed the first two episodes of the show, catch up with the full-length episodes below:

OC Foodie Fest Logo

The 2nd OC Foodie Fest is making its way back to Anaheim, CA this Saturday, August 27th and its bringing over 100 gourmet food trucks with it. Food Trucks from both Los Angeles and Orange County will be in attendance including two trucks from the current season of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race – The Lime Truck & Seabirds Truck. Other truck notables include: AhnJooLA, Dogzilla Hot Dogs, Great Balls on Tires, Poutine Truck, The White Rabbit Truck and you know, 91 more trucks in case you’re REALLY hungry.

Foodie Fest 2010

The OC Foodie Fest was founded by fellow Food Truck Entrepreneur James Foxall of Taco Dawg, an OC truck that has been placed on hiatus because of the success of the original OC Foodie Fest. Saturday will feature a number of additions to the festival including a car show, expanded arts and family area, an inflatable soccer field and oh yeah, beer pong tournaments with the Bud Light Girls.

“This Foodie Fest is a continuation and evolution of what was started last year,” said Foxall. And when asked about future plans of Foodie Fest outside of Southern California Foxall added, “Foodie Fest will be everywhere within the next couple of years.

Foodie Fest is at the very least expanding outside of Orange County as Foxall mentioned a signed-deal with The Home Depot Center. The event is supposed to be scheduled in the next few months, and urban dwellers shouldn’t be too surprised if the event lands at an arena near you.

FOODBEAST asked Foxall if he had to get just 1 item from 1 food truck on Saturday, what would it be?

Seabirds makes a fried avocado taco. That maybe the best thing, that doesn’t have meat in it, I’ve ever tasted in my life,” Foxall said. “I’m a Midwest boy and grew up with meat, but this is what people should try, it’s to die for.”
