Categories: Edible Events

Food Truck Friday @ Houston Press
Friday, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
2603 La Branch

This Friday, Coreanos will be joining us for lunch. Bring your family, co-workers and friends, and fill up your stomach with Mexican-Korean fusion dishes. How do Korean BBQ Tacos with spicy twice cooked pork belly, Korean slaw, onions, cilantro and a sesame oil vinaigrette sound? Or how about the Loco Pollo burrito with spicy marinated chicken and el scorcho sauce? Don't forget the Kim Cheese Fries with pork belly and caramelized kimchi.

Bayou City Outdoors Farmers Market Bike Ride @ Onion Creek
Saturday, 8 a.m.
3106 White Oak Dr.

Grab your backpack, your helmet and your bike and head to Onion Creek for the Saturday morning Bayou City Outdoors Farmers Market Bike Ride. Meet at Onion Creek for a cup of coffee to give you that caffeine boost you need to start the ride, and chat with friends as you ride from Onion Creek to two or three farmers' markets in Houston. You'll be able to fill up your backpack with a variety of local goods such as jams, breads, snacks and in-season produce. The bike ride lasts approximately three hours, giving you tons of time to buy the foods you want, ride to the markets and make your way back to Onion Creek for lunch.

National Margarita Day @ El Gran Malo

2307 Ella Blvd.

Saturday is National Margarita Day and El Gran Malo has got two ways for you to celebrate. Enjoy $5 house margaritas beginning at 11 a.m. and/or mix and match infused margarita flights for $15. Strong tequila with fresh lemon and lime juice makes one heck of a margarita. El Gran Malo has won Best Margarita at our event "Tequila and Tamales" for the past three years...just sayin'.
