Winterize those food trucks

As the weather gets chillier, Sacramento’s outdoor events begin to dwindle, but SactoMoFo’s recurring Long Lunch Fridays will be continuing on through at least the new year. Taking place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on December 1 right next to the Golden 1 Center (500 David J. Stern Walk), the event will feature local food truck favorites including the deluxe desserts of Cowtown Creamery, the renowned Mexican food of Chando’s Tacos and the tasty Thai classics of Green Papaya. There’ll also be the novel, fusion comfort food of Flavor Face, including a grilled cheese sandwich made with crab mac ‘n’ cheese ($14), a thick-cut cauliflower steak dressed in chimichurri ($11) and the doubly decadent oxtail poutine ($16) that comes with a burgundy gravy, sharp cheddar cheese curds and a chicharrón gremolata—just for good measure. Afterward, you may want to work off your lunch with a few laps around the nearby Downtown Ice Rink.
