Epic Eatz’ owner, John Adams, is an experienced chef who loves San Diego and expresses it through his self-described surf cuisine. The colorful truck, which opened in January 2012, serves tempting dishes like Hawaiian ahi poki, fish tacos, local Halibut ceviche, carnitas tortas and teriyaki-yaki tacos. He and his team take care to create fun, new dishes with Mexican, Asian and Polynesian influences using lots of local ingredients. John took the time to answer some questions for SDFT in this interview.
SDFT: What did you do before you had the food truck? Tell us a little about yourself.
JA: I grew up working in the restaurant business, working every position in the industry. At the age of 17, I became sous chef at one of northern California’s best restaurants. I was very involved in the culinary scene until I graduated college and switched gears from food to technology.
