Seabirds Food Truck.

        I am such a bad blogger, I know.....that's another topic though for some other time. Over the weekend if you didn't hear about it in Salt Lake City we were lucky to have some food trucks storm in. They we're all on the Food Network's reality show The Great Food Truck Race(or at least that's what I think it's called) for it's second season. What ever truck sold the least was booted off. I wasn't in town on Saturday to get something from the trucks, but I was happy to find out they stayed Sunday. I got home and had just enough time to figure where some of the trucks may be. They all had a challenge (I think) called a bump challenge so all the food trucks would be switching locations a lot. It made it harder to find all of the trucks that's for sure. The trucks competing that I knew of are; Rocky's a gourmet grilled cheese truck, Korilla a Korean barbeque truck, The Lime a light california cuisine truck, Seabirds a all vegan truck, Cafe Con Leche i'm not sure what they serve, and Devilicious which serves crazy unhealthy food, I'd call it. 

So I'm sure you can pick what one I went to.....Seabirds! I wanted to go to the Lime truck, but didn't have enough time, wasn't hungry, and my dad didn't want to chase another truck for me. 
Seabirds is back at 900 S. 900 E. Shooting for 12:30 Thanks @parkcityvegan for the tip!

Seabirds is from Orange County, California. They're organic, and can have gluten free and raw options.
Here's a quote from the owner herself.

“This truck came to life with a dream and a desire: A dream for vegan street food, and a desire to provide healthy, local food that’s convenient and fairly priced. Orange County is a great place to live, but it was lacking quality choices for those wishing to consume a healthier, plant-based diet. I started Seabirds because I wanted to make a difference not only in the lives of the people of Orange County, but in the world we love and live in.” ~Stephanie Morgan, Owner

When I got to the truck they were at Pet Smart and there was definitely a few slew of people around it. Kelly from Cake walk even showed up! One of the owners of the truck was out playing a uke(somewhat), she was very sweet. I wish I wasn't so shy I would've talked to her  more.

            On there menu they had a pesto flat bread that has balsamic mushrooms, chipotle sour cream, and a few other veggies. I opted out of that one since I don't like mushrooms. There was cinnamon sugar toast that my dad got since it was the only thing he could have, it was at $5 bucks. "Most expensive piece of toast I've ever bought" my dad said. I exclaimed to him that it was worth it though.

Lastly they had a Brown Fried Rice with veggies and tofu, I remember mine has bell pepper, cilantro,a lime wedge, onions and mushrooms(I had to pick around these). There was suppose to be snap peas, but I didn't have get any. I don't know if they didn't have any or just forgot. This was $10. Either way it was still delicious! I even have a few leftovers for lunch today, not much because I inhaled this and two pieces of toast. I think my metabolism is getting higher. 

The food was tasty and I sure hope Seabirds makes it far into the competition. I wish I had a chance to have tried The Lime truck, but I'm just happy I got to support Seabirds. 

I highly suggest to follow Seabirds on twitter.
Here's their website for more information.
