Taste of home
Now that life has fully gone into summer mode I've begun to notice the city opening up. People are cheerful, weekends are productive, and there is always a festival or activity to visit. One of my favorite, and recently discovered, warm weather additions is nestled between a few parking lots and rests on a concrete slab...the food cart collective, Mark's Carts. LA had its explosion of roaming food vehicles and their daily routes were one of my favorite things to track (I still follow Coolhaus just for fun), but after moving to Ann Arbor I figured I could only indulge in their tasty creations when I visited home. So, I was pretty excited to happen upon the mitten's addition to the mobile food gang. The sunny patio houses a handful of tasty vendors, ranging from steamed pork buns to seasonally inspired breakfast burritos. This weekend Paul and I treated ourselves to an al fresco lunch after a long morning of redecorating. Perched on a wall, under a tree, with a cold soda was the perfect way to enjoy the afternoon.
