From Trash to Treasure: the Food Trucks at Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market

22 Jul

Considering Kristien’s obsession with all things HGTV, it’s a surprise it took us so long to get to the Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market. This massive market every Sunday in New Milford features antiques, rare finds, farm stands, and anything you’d need to furnish a home. Sure, you have to rummage through some trash to get to the treasures, but that’s part of the fun. In fact, there are so many food trucks at this flea market every Sunday, they sort of work the same way. They have lots of smaller carts and stands serving up hot dogs, lemonade, Italian ices, and breakfast sandwiches that could be hidden treasures, and they have some of the food trucks we’re all heard of that might not be as much of a treasure as you’d hoped. So we’re going to break down our trash and treasure food truck finds for you so you don’t have to rummage. We got your back! Continue reading

Gettin’ our authentic Mexican on at Rincón Taqueria

13 Jul

We don’t know who invented this Taco Tuesday crap, but we think pretty much EVERY day is a perfect day for tacos. Like, say, a few Saturdays ago when we finally hit up Rincon Taqueria in Norwalk after seeing, oh, we don’t know, pretty much ALL of our friends rave about it on Facebook and Instagram. See, we’re kind of taco fanatics, so it seemed a little ridiculous we hadn’t gotten to this authentic Mexican spot sooner.

The long and the short of it is, it totally lives up to the hype we’ve been seeing. Here’s why . . . Continue reading

Pig Roast, Beer Garden + Sidewalk Margarita Bar @ Bodega’s Cinco de Mayo Party 2016

26 Apr


Cinco de Mayo is just a few days away . . . and we’ve got some great news to share coming from Bodega Taco Bar. Which one, OmNom, which one? BOTH! But how do we decide which one to go to, OmNom? Well, it depends what you’re into:

Darien will have a pig roast, Patron tequila specials, music from PanaMusik, and a pop-up beer garden. Fairfield will feature the Bodega food truck, a sidewalk margarita bar, more Patron tequila specials, and “strolling guitar music.” If you are as hardcore as we hope you are, you could easily hit up one then get to the other. ;)

Then, just tres days later, check out their Mother’s Day brunch from 11-4 or dinner from 4-10. You take mom out, she gets a free cocktail. ;)

Vaya con Dios, OmNomivoritos!

Hardcore Sweet, Highland Brass, Lucky Taco + Waypoint Spirits Team Up for Killer Class

14 Apr


Going back to school isn’t all about US history, writing, and learning how to use a computer . . . it’s also about eating the hell out of everything in front of you, drinking up, and learning how to make some sweet (hardcore sweet) desserts. It all goes down in the second installment of the CT Culinary Trail class from Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes.

Muy Caliente: 5 Course Azuñia Tequila Dinner @ Bodega Fairfield

30 Jan


UPDATE: Moved to March 2 at 7:30 because of the very annoying snow.

If you know anything about us, you know we love our Mexican food here at OmNomCT. And, if you know even more about us, you know that we really dig the food at Bodega Taco Bar. They have killer grilled corn (elote), creative spins on tacos, and wonderful dishes that keep us coming back. Part of the allure of Bodega is their focus on excellent cocktails and their love of all things tequila. Well, that love of the classic fermented agave liquor is about ready to take the spotlight once again at Bodega Fairfield on February 9 March 2 starting at 7:30 with the Azuñia Tequila Dinner. Tickets are $65 in advance or $75 at the door with with tax and tip extra. To get tickets, call up (203) 292-9590 or email David.

The menu that night will feature five courses of freshly prepared, bright, and succulent Mexican dishes highlighted with a different kind of Azuñia tequila. This Mexican-made liquor is made from 100% Weber Blue Agave and is actually certified as USDA organic. And, believe it or not, Azuñia is one of the oldest agave producers in the Tequila and Jalisco parts of Mexico. Now, just a little primer on tequila before we share the menu:

Free Chipotle burrito on 1/26, but there’s a catch . . .

9 Jan

Meatless Monday

We know people go crazy over the word free, so we figure that we’d letcha know about a deal going down at all Chipotles here in the US of A and our friendly neighbors up north. Check them out on Monday, 1/26, and order their tofu Sofritas and keep that receipt. All you need to do from there is bring that receipt back into any Chipotle from 1/27 until 2/28/15 and you’ll get a free burrito, bowl, salad, or even tacos.

Chipotle describes their Sofritas as, “Organic tofu from Hodo Soy that we shred and then braise with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos, and a blend of aromatic spices. The result is a delicious, spicy tofu that will give vegans and carnivores something they both will love.”

Hey, don’t knock it ’till ya tried it.
