I attended a Yelp tasting event at TLT Food in their newest location in Newport Beach.
I’ve been to their Irvine Spectrum location, and love their unique spin on tacos.
This was my second time at a Yelp event.
It’s always a lot of fun with good food and friendly people.
We could order any drink on the menu.
I got a guava limeade. It was good, but I couldn’t really taste any guava flavor.
Later I got a refill of mango limeade. It was sweeter, and you can really taste the mango.
While waiting for everyone to arrive, we munched on some Cali Ceviche.
This vegan ceviche was very refreshing – tart and sweet.
I also like their homemade tortilla chips a lot. It was thick and very crunchy.
The owner Daniel (the guy with the hat backward and apron on) told us about the history of TLT.
6 years ago when he was 20, he started the Lime Truck.
It was an instant success. Now 6 years later, they have 4 restaurants!
Brussels Sprouts was very flavorful.
And it’s healthy food, right?!
I had Chimi Noodles before at their Irvine location.
Well, we didn’t like it last time. This time I still thought it was just ok.
The pork belly was really good, fatty and tender.
But the noodle doesn’t have much taste to it.
Yum Yum Lamb Sliders was my favorite dish of the night.
One bite and you will scream out its name – Yum Yum.
The lamb patty had a slight curry flavor.
With cool tzatziki, spicy lime-sambal sauce, sweet pickled red onion, it was the perfect combination.
I will definitely come back for the slider!
吃一口大家都忍不住驚呼漢堡的名字 – Yum Yum，
Another very delicious dish – Poblano Chicken Nachos.
There was so much shredded tender chicken meat on the nachos.
The cheese sauce and guacamole were both very addicting.
I took some leftover home for Dr. P. He finished it in no time and wanted some more.
又是一道很好吃的菜 – 雞肉起司烤玉米脆片，
My tummy was about to explode at this point. But we got more food.
Sweet & Spicy Steak Taco, just like its name, was indeed sweet and spicy.
The steak was very tender. It was tasty with the crunchy veggies and wonton.
I love the Lime Penna Cotta.
Just the right balance of tart and sweet.
It was a great finish to our amazing tasting.
The owner’s mom also dropped by to say hi. She’s so young!
I had such a great time at this Yelp event.
Looking forward to the next one!
