Global Street Food Event With Evan Kleiman In Santa Monica

Below are some photos from the Global Steet Food event presented by KCRW and SMC Associates and hosted by KCRW’s Good Food host and Angeli Caffe owner/chef Evan Klieman on Sunday, May 1st.  The event took the form of a panel discussion at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica that included the plain-spoken witticisms of Jonathon Gold (Who declared, “Taco is a verb!”), OC Weekly restaurant reviewer and columnist Gustave Arellano, and Jet Tila of Wazuzu in the Wynn Encore in Las Vegas.  Evan’s smooth-as-butter voice lead a lively and oftentimes humorous exploration of traditional street foods with an emphasis on Asia and Mexico, but included Europe and New York as well.  Afterward, the crowd adjourned to the sunny parking lot where, included in the price of the ticket, were samples of various local food trucks including Nom Nom Truck, India Jones Chow Truck, and Crepe’n Around.  People lolled about what little shade they could find, nibbled various treats, and enjoyed a marimba band making for a glorious So-Cal afternoon.
