Review: The Mobile Gourmet

Like a blessing from the food truck gods, The Mobile Gourmet has created a gathering place for the Bay Area’s favorite mobile restaurants. Say goodbye to frantic Twitter updates and hello to Nom Nom, Bacon Bacon, Señor SiSig,  and various other vendors with cult followings.

On Friday nights the food truck gang gathers for bites, beer, and wine at The 3rd Door (131 Lytton Avenuein Downtown Palo Alto from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. And the lunch crowd converges at the Hiller Aviation Museum (601 Skyway) in San Carlos every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For The 3rd Door: Take the Caltrain (Train 158) to Palo Alto Caltrain stop. Walk to Lytton Avenue. For Hiller Aviation: Take the Caltrain to San Carlos.
