Yamashiro's night time Farmer's Market in Hollywood
April - September 27
Operating only from April - September from 5-9 pm, you should visit if you are in Los Angeles! There are some produce stands, but many people attend to eat dinner and relax. On our night, there were 3-4 food trucks, Yamashiro's slider stand, Takken skewers, crepes, french fries, and some other yummy things we couldn't fit in our bellies.
I picked up some Chocolate Peanut Butter from Nuttin Butter (bottom left photo) and we ended our meal with a snickerdoodle cookie with strawberry mojito sorbet sandwiches from the Cool Haus truck (bottom right photo).
Takken sweet BBQ corn and filet mignon skewers. I had these when I went to the 626 Night Market in Pasadena and loved them. They don't have a restaurant, but appear at several farmer's markets in Los Angeles.
Bottom: Yamashiro has their own stand selling alcohol and sliders (menu). Oh dear. These sliders were delicious! We bought the Kurobuta Pork Carnitas ($4) with Hoisin & Honey Mustard, and the Alaskan Crab ($5) with 5 spice corn salsa, bell pepper mayo. The pickle bar is the BEST (I should have asked if they sold containers of these pickles) - Wasabi Ginger Mango, Green Bean, and Cucumber pickles. Perfection!
Speaking of going in and out...you need to ARRIVE EARLY and take the shuttle. There is no parking in the area (it's a neighborhood with a narrow road). You can valet park your car at a church parking lot, then a van shuttles you up the Yamashiro's. Before you freak about the valet, the lot is tiny so they need to stack the cars super duper close to each other. My friend suggests parking at Hollywood & Highland complex and walking up to the front of Yamashiro's...might try that if your legs want to make that hike.
You have less than two months remaining for this year's festivities... be sure to head up the hill!
