Eventbrite. The Fideo Loco Festival & Cook-Off
Chefs, vendors, and competitors from all around the city will prepare their own versions of the classic Mexican comfort food. This year’s participants include Chef Edward Villarreal of Homegrown Chef, as well as a host of other qualified contenders. Meat lovers should look out for Villarreal’s table, as his fideo includes a hearty mix of chorizo, chicharrones, and bacon, plus pinto beans. In years past, other inventive culinarians have presented fideo as taco filling and an appetizing seafood paella. Your ticket comes with a voting token, so when you find a fideo that warms your heart like a homecooked meal, feel free to support the chef and cast your vote for a job well done.
The third annual event will also feature libations by Alamo Beer, local vendors with a variety of wares, and live music by Los Callejeros de San Anton. It’s not uncommon to catch the crowd moving to Los Callejero’s music, so wear your dancing shoes.
