LA Street Food Fest is an annual highlight produced by my dear friend Shawna Dawson and her amazing team at Sauce L.A. Over a hundred vendors gather in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to sample their yummy yummy food for about 5000 guests.
It’s a gorge fest (all you can eat and drink for the cost of your ticket) and stretchy pants are highly encouraged. I went to the first two (this was the 6th) but for the past few years I’ve not been able to attend thanks to conflicting schedules – even last year when my team attended to film for UNIQLO I had to be at our own event across town! So, finally, I returned, and it was even better than I remembered. The event was seamless, the lines minimal to non existent and the food was out of control… massive kudos to Shawna and team – you’re a powerhouse and continue to inspire me :)

P.S We attended LASFF as media guests, but all opinions are my own, as evidenced by my new waistline.
