It would seem that food trucks and vendors have begun taking over downtown Napa and I for one am very excited. Why am I excited, you may ask? I’m excited because three of these trucks will be parking at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards on December 11th for the Mutineer Magazine Holiday Comedy Festival. Okay, so its one truck, an Airstream and a mobile barbecue trailer, but the idea is the same.
Dim Sum Charlie’s will be joining us at the Comedy Festival. Normally found just past the train tracks, off of First Street in Napa, Dim Sum Charlie’s is owned by Andrew Siegal and chef Clayton Lewis. They serve up delicious dim sum from pork sui mai dumplings to sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaves stuffed with pork sausage, chicken and scallops. I know I can’t wait to try out some of these dumplings paired with an ale from Lagunitas or crisp Vernaccia wine from Jacuzzi, both of which will be offered at the tasting during the festival.
Can’t wait until the festival to try the dumplings from Dim Sum Charlie’s? Check out Food Truck Friday in downtown Napa outside the Oxbow Market by Gotts Roadside this Friday December 3rd.
