Oakland VegFest Food

Last Saturday Matt and I headed to the East Bay for our anniversary. We decided since the weather was nice why not head over and check out VegFest at Lake Merritt.

First thing  I wanted to try was No Worries, I have wanted to try their food for years plus their truck was set up across the street away from the crowed.

Photo taken by Matt - I was to busy looking at food!

I was hoping they would have lumpia and they did! So I ordered us both a order (2 rolls per order). Nice and crunchy! I should have grabbed some Sriracha but I wanted to eat!

Once across the street we walked around and sampled food. There was food I wanted to try/buy but I was sticking to my budget so I passed on the $6 bar of chocolate and the $9 bottle of juice.

I am a sucker for good falafel.So when I saw the Flying Falafel tent I new I had to get a pita sandwich.

Packed full of veggies, falafel and sauce it was a hit. Everything tasted really fresh - not always the falafel case in my experience. I would totally buy falafel here again.

We sampled a few Miyoko's Kitchen cheeze - Matt really liked the 02 sundried tomato with garlic. At Whole Foods Berkeley I bought him a wedge to share with me (of course!). So good!

It was a nice event. The Jesus church folk did ruin it a bit, screaming about being saved, coming up and trying to proselytize. Ugh!


  1. Oooooh looks like fun! Lottsa yummy food!

  2. Happy Anniversary to you both! Yay for the cheese and delicious falafel but boo to the Jesus people coming out to ruin the fun!
