This One's For My Husband -- The Park's Finest BBQ

My husband is a huge carnivore.  If he could eat meat at every meal he would.  So when he saw the link on Yelp to The Park's Finest BBQ with accompanying pictures of meat in all it's glory, he forwarded the link and told me, "This is something to blog about."

Turns out The Park's has no restaurant.  They only do catering.  So in order to taste their deliciousness you need live in LA or at least be visiting, throw a party, invite all your carnivorous friends, and have Park's cater it.

And why is The Park's so great?  The secret is the BBQ sauce.  According to the blog NJ Eats, "The sauce makes this barbecue. Don't get me wrong. The meats are great but significantly enhanced by the addition of this sweet, spicy, garlicky, smoky delight that you likely have never tasted before. It's that transformational."

The secret is in the sauce

So what is the sauce?  Passed down for generations, Johneric Concordia, owner of The The Park's BBQ, says it's rooted in flavors from the Philippine islands where his family is from.   Natural sugars from cane and pineapples are simmered with soy sauce, peppers, and spices.

So let's read what some people on Yelp had to say:

From Craig R in West LA, CA:

"Adjectives describing The Parks Finest:

Delectable Delicious Divine Flavorful Heavenly Juicy Mouthwatering Savory Scrumptious Succulent Tasty Yummy"

From Larry O in San Dimas, CA:

"Pork Pork Pork Pork. Oh my god it is falling off the bone delicious. I LOVE PORK. Especially when it is cooked like this!!!"

And from Steve S in West Hollywood, CA:

"Those who follow my reviews know I don't give out 5 stars easily. But today I experienced not only some of the finest quality BBQ, but also the most amazing BBQ sauce that ever past my lips."

So for all you meatlovers out there.  One more picture...

A Great Catering Idea... The Taco Truck

For those of you not in California, you may not be familiar with the ubiquitous taco truck, but for those of us from the West Coast, especially LA, we know them well for their quick, yummy, carne asada.

Recently I've been hearing about taco trucks catering parties -- kids birthday parties, picnics, and even weddings.  It's a fun, inexpensive way to feed lots of people, especially when there are no real cooking facilities available on premises.

And now with Kogi, the Korean BBQ taco truck that's sweeping LA (they tweet their location daily on Twitter and lines form way in advance of arrival), taco trucks have even gone upscale.  In fact, in this economy, I see the start of a new trend here.  Say you want to open a restaurant but the startup costs are too high, you can begin by going mobile.

People in LA swear by them.

Anyway, if you're looking for an alternative to sub sandwiches and pizza, think taco truck for your next party.  And if you're in LA, check out this blog, The Great Taco Hunt.  It seem to be the authority.
