The Cooking Channel is filming Mangia Mangia Tomorrow- Be There!

The Cooking Channel will be filming Mangia Mangia during lunch at 1231 Cave St in La Jolla tomorrow, Wednesday, April 27.  The footage will be for their show about food trucks, Eat St. Bring your friends and see if you can get on camera!  I’ve seen an episode and they do seem to show some short clips of people enjoying and commenting on the truck’s food.

New Trucks and an Upcoming Event!

Three new trucks are coming:

  1. Mangia Mangia (@mangiatruck).  Early reports state that they will be serving Italian food in La Jolla.  Their debut will be at the 57 Degrees wine shop from 4pm-8pm on Sunday, March 27th where there will be live music and free truffle fries.
  2. Munchie Mobile (@MunchieMobile).  This controversial entry into the food truck scene is from fast-food chain Jack in the Box.  Their debut is Friday night, March 25 at 5th & J Street in the Gaslamp.
  3. The Gathering Spot (@tgsbistrotruck) will be debuting at the next 57 Degrees Truck Gathering in April. They will serve “fresh gourmet street foods” like tacos, street dogs, sliders, grilled cheese and fries.
  4. Green Truck (@greentruck_sd) opened last weekend and serves items like veggie burgers, chicken wraps, salads, and mahi tacos.  They use only certified organic foods, buy locally grown ingredients when possible, and run their truck off of vegetable oil.  All of their food packaging containers are made from biodegradable products.


The East Village Opening Day Block Party (Padres vs. Giants) has just been announced, and if you are a food truck fan in San Diego, you won’t want to miss this.  The event organizers have stated that they are going to have 8 trucks and 2 carts, making this a pretty big deal!  The event will also have live music and a beer garden.

Tuesday, April 5
J Street between 7th and 10th
