[Santa Monica] Taste of Santa Monica

Taste of Santa Monica這個活動是經由Meetup裡面的台灣人社團知道的. 結果他們取消活動. 但我還是很想來看看, 便約了附近幾個好友一起來參加.

住在西區多年了, 竟然都不曉得有這麼個活動. 將近50間Santa Monica附近的餐廳當天會在Santa Monica碼頭擺攤位, 給民眾試吃美食. 真是個促進生意的好主意! 當天還有現場音樂表演及馬戲團表演(Cirque du Soleil).

門票一人$10. 但進去裡面每個攤位還是需要付錢買食物吃. 現場另外提供一個VIP手環, $65, 就可無限制吃遍所有的攤位, 我們之中就有個朋友買了VIP pass. 結果他就不停地去每個攤位拿東西吃, 還幫我們每個人拿我們愛吃的食物, 一張$65的VIP票就可以餵飽我們6個人, 真是划算!

這天拍出來的相片因為調錯照相模式, 出來的色澤全都呈藍色, 看起來怪怪的. 當天的陽光其實很強, 拍出來的照片應該很漂亮才對.

各大間餐廳攤位, 比較知名的有The Lobster, Enterprise Fish Company, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company等, 都是這附近知名的餐廳.

馬戲團員工踩著高翹走在人群中使雜耍, 努力討好身邊的觀眾.

因為忙著不停地排隊拿食物吃, 竟然都忘了拍照, 只拍到下面幾張照片而已. 大都是小小份一口可吃完的份量. 就要價$3-6了. 有點小貴!

Ahi Taco. 不大敢吃生魚的我, 竟然喜歡上這份Ahi Taco. 生鮪魚肉配上特調的美乃茲醬, 可惜這個Taco好小份, 吃完後覺得很不過癮!

蟹肉餅

這家印度餐廳很夠意思, 給了一大盤印度米飯, 羊肉咖哩及蔬菜. 好吃耶~

天氣熱, 來份芭樂冰淇淋吧!

感謝我們有VIP pass的朋友, 幫我們拿了這麼多免費飲料, 滿桌的Red Bull及罐裝水. 喝都喝不完.

我們就這樣從下午2點吃吃喝喝到5點結束. 中餐晚餐一起解決, 吃得好撐喔! 那位VIP朋友竟然還去跟店家要了個大袋子, 到處去搜括可以帶回家的食品, 包括一包米, 麵包, Red Bulls, 水, 罐頭食物等等. 我想他們下星期的伙食全都包囊了! 真是有得玩又有得拿的好地方!

這樣的活動聽說別的城市也有舉辦, 只不過Santa Monica這個靠海的地點更加吸引人! 今天來這個活動真是值回票價, 不僅有吃的還有拿的, 太棒啦! 明年還有在辦的話一定要再來!

    ooh are you part of LATYPG as well?
    We had a lot of fun that day. What we did was ask one person to get the VIP pass and he could get us free food all afternoon long. They don't even bother to check. It was totally worth it!

  2. haha, I didn't think about that, looks like you guys had a great
    strategy in place. With one VIP you can certainly fill everyone
    up and really get treated like a VIP by the others! maybe I
    should try that next year 😛
    Yeah I have been with the group for a long time already hehe.

  3. haha, maybe, but what is your name lol. I haven't been
    attending events for a while now too as I am in Rowland Height
    area(driving is my worst nightmare :P).
