626 Night Market
Skipped the fourth 626 Night Market (held June 2013), but made the fifth one. They've moved it from the infield of Santa Anita to the outer area, which is much more scenic, and can be scaled to handle the crowds better.
Supposedly the fourth had too much Mexican food and not enough Asian food, but this (fifth) one seemed fine-- and packed to the gills, but packed in a manageable sort of way, unlike the first one. Quite enjoyable, but not enough places to sit or stand and eat... kind of had to shuffle around among the crowds. Getting around from area to area was also less than ideal, they had a few aisles that were just a little too narrow for the crowds they had.
Had some excellent mushu at Runbing, some so-so lamb skewers (and decent spicy cold noodle) at Beijing Tasty House, and a kinda-ok green onion pancake somewhere. Takken's snow crab hand roll was good but the skewers were awful this time (wrong seasoning for the pork belly, the filet mignon was cold). Others are huge fans of Starry Kitchen, but I wasn't impressed by anything they had. Pork balls, churros, tofu balls... the tofu balls were good but lacked flavor, the churros were still doughy inside.
Mama Musubi was awesome as always, though. They really need to open a store, or at least visit a little further toward the coast someday! Father's Kernel for roast corn was definitely passable (and dirt cheap, only $2). Ran out of stomach space for much more, so had to skip stinky tofu, Waffles de Liege, and Ludotruck. Very sad since Ludotruck is awesome. Also-- overlooked Vikon Farms for their chicken. Oops!
Going to have to come back next time!
