Eat Real Festival, Jack London Square, September 24, 2011

Food trucks are suddenly everywhere, so why not Oakland? Oakland’s Eat Real Festival, now in its second year, featured about four dozen of them, with dishes from Asia, Africa, South America, and Berkeley.

We were blown away not just by diversity but by quality last year, and this year the big difference is that someone brought a camera.

As you see, we began with the national anthem.

Then Daniel found a barbecued slider and corn.

Below,  an Indian street food truck. I really wanted some of that, but holding the camera made it tough–I’ll keep this in mind for my next diet.

People lined up wherever you look.

Meanwhile, the sliders attract more takers.

Are people’s batteries beginning to run down? Or should I admit I’m not doing very well with the camera and get to work on the food? I pass the camera to Daniel for one last shot.

He catches everyone with eyes open–but not for long. Afterwards we go to my place and in minutes everyone’s asleep.
