Bringing together Northern California’s best epicureans on wheels, SactoMoFo presents SactoMofo 3in Downtown Sacramento. The single-day food festival that introduced the mobile food phenomenon to Sacramento brings its third and largest festival, featuring tantalizing cuisines by local food trucks and stands, as well as exceptional food trucks from one of the best culinary destinations in the country, if not the world – San Francisco.
Chris Jarosz, owner of Wicked ‘Wich, one of Sacramento’s most popular food trucks also attending SactoMoFo3, serving East-Coast-inspired deli sandwiches said, “Fuzion Eatz has a great concept and unique niche, here in Sacramento, and they’re offering an excellent menu. I think people will receive them well.” Earlier this week, Jarosz announced in a national release that he intends to debut California’s first food truck chase car, “the L’il ‘Wich” for delivery service directly from his mobile kitchen.
Both culinary arts students, Lopez and Sawyer plan to rotate their menu items with a variety of dishes to expose their customers to a culinary sophistication seldom seen in the Sacramento region. 27 year-old Manager and Fuzion Eatz Co-Owner, Lopez said, “Sacramento is a city which thrives on change; I believe that its residents are aching for new, innovative and interesting forms of cuisine. Our mission is to serve quality gourmet dishes to our customers and to promote small business relationships. We’re excited to bring our mix of Mediterranean and Greek-influenced dishes to SactoMoFo3.”
Supporting local artists, Lopez and Sawyer plan to show artists’ work at and on their truck, food items, and art events. “We’d love to fuse art and gourmet cuisines, and bring something really unique to Sacramento,” said Lopez.
A convoy of eight of San Francisco’s best food trucks including Chairman Bao, JapaCurry, Hapa SF, El Porteno, An the Go, as well as Seoul on Wheels andBacon Bacon, voted in the Top Ten Food Trucks in San Francisco by the Chase Sapphire Visa Signature Eater’s Choice Awards will join the event, making it the largest and most diverse mobile food festival in Northern California.
“Fuzion Eatz will bring the perfect blend of sophistication and creativity to this event; I can’t think of a better paring with the diverse San Francisco cuisines that will be served at this event,” said Christopher Ford, Co-Founder of Stitches ‘n Dishes.
Also featured at the event are Sacramento’s leading food trucks, including Mini Burger, Chando Taco’s, Wicked ‘Wich, Heavenly Dog’s, Simply Southern Foods / It’s Corn Cake, Cajun Wagon, La Peidad, Volkswaffle, Smoothie Patrol, Swabbies, Leila’s Lumpia, Esther’s Cupcakes and Food Network’s Great Truck Race contender, Drewski’s.
“I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember,” said 28 year-old Head Chef and Fuzion Eatz Co-Owner, Nathan Sawyer. As a child, he assumed cooking responsibilities while his mother worked three jobs. He continued his culinary studies at Job Corp in Reno, Nevada, then completed an internship at the River City Casino. He served in the United Sates Army as a Food Service Specialist, completing a 15-month tour in Iraq, before returning to Sacramento to join forces with lifelong friend, Lopez and embark on a new mission in the food truck brigade. “I’m looking forward to bringing our menu to SactoMoFo3,” he said.
