A great thing about Las Vegas is that there doesn’t ever seem to be a lack of events! One of our foodie friends who lives out in LA told us about the Las Vegas Foodie Fest, and we knew we had to check it out. I mean.. I love food. Don’t you?
This was Las Vegas Foodie Fest’s 5th annual event bringing in over 40 of the nation’s favorite food trucks, including White Rabbit, FUKU Burger, White Castle etc. If you’re into food trucks, this is a great way to cross a bunch of them off your list. On top of that, there are tents with featured casino chefs, a beer garden, carnival rides, live entertainment, and local merchants. Four days of food & fun conveniently located on the strip right across from the Luxor.
They kindly let me use their event staff pass so that I could come in early and take some photos before the crowds came in.
We ended up trying the Bahn Mi Dog from Buldogis which were delicious! Gotta support the Koreans.. I guess. :P Jacob didn’t even realize until later that Buldogis was a play on words for Bulgogi + Dog.
White castle had the craziest lines. We saw a lot of people carrying the crave crates of 100 sliders.
How typical…A line for dole whip. I don’t think I will ever get to try it.
This is the VIP area. If you get a VIP pass, it gives you parking at the gate and access to the VIP area which has an OPEN BAR! 4 Days of unlimited drinks! If you’ve ever been to Vegas you know that you can rack up a drink tab quickly on the strip.
Look! We ran into some more friends! Great minds think alike! ;) Also, Jacob only thinks about his own light when taking a photo.
This was our double date with Jess & Joe. Jess will be doing her own blog post on it shortly, so check that out here!
Stay tuned for next year’s Las Vegas Foodie Fest:

Pictures are superb and I def need that buldogi RIGHT NOW. Bulgogi is one of my favorite foods!!!
thanks britt! :) the thing we ordered was nothing close to bulgogi.. i think also it was because jacob was the one who got us the food and he didn’t realize that buldogi was a korean food truck. lol so he ordered vietnamese,
This looks so much fun!! The Bahn Mi Dog looks like an heart attach and I can’t believe there was a super long line for White Castle. Why?! It’s just like Krystal’s right? And don’t they have stores so why do they have a food truck? What is Dole Whip? I saw you finally got to try it in LA. What’s so special about it?
haha there were pickled veggies under there.. so it wasn’t ALL bad. :) i feel like we have to start watching our health though.. esp jacob since it runs in the family.
dole whip is like pineapple ice cream. they don’t serve it at many places and the popular one is at disney and you have to wait in ridiculous hour long lines for it.. i’ve never wanted to wait but i was always curious about it. it’s good and i like it, but i feel like waiting that long is kinda absurd to me.
they have white castle stores in the Northeast, but not anywhere else so that’s why they have a food truck. they made a killing at the foodie fest. people always want the things they can’t normally have. i don’t think crystals is over here either.
haha i do agree we should watch what we eat esp since we’re getting older! i don’t add as much salt in my food and now when i go out and eat, i’m more sensitive to salt.
ah interesting. yea ppl wait for the craziest thing i guess. there’s not much fast food over here as the south i think :p
So awesome, wish I had been there for that. My parents live in Vegas so I am there a lot. And…is that Nigahiga???!
It was a great event! You should check it out if it comes back next year. And yes it is. :)
wowwzas, I want a bite of that buldogi! :)
It was surprisingly good! Although, since I was sick, I kind of ate everything piece by piece so I’m not sure how the combination of everything was. :D Jacob liked it though.
oh my gosh! this is awesome….and looks like SO MUCH FUN!
you really captured some great pictures here (as always!)
Thank you Amy! :) Are you going to ay food festivals in your area? Now, I want to go to another one!
WOW this sounds amazing! I love a good food truck! I’m sorry but if I was at an event like that I would not be standing in line for White Castle, I would want something more unique.
:) Which ones your fave? Yeah, I think people just want what they can’t normally have. We definitely liked our choice!
