Stand & Deliver / MIHO Gastrotruck / The Vetted Table

BREWS N’ BITES

Posted by Kevin on 01/31/2014

Great beer and great food go together so well. Since we started MIHO Gastrotruck, we have always enjoyed beer collaborations, whether it be our Behind-the-Brewery series with Ballast Point or being part of so many brewery grand openings. We just enjoy bringing the best of both worlds together.

We are back with a MIHO beer dinner series called Brews N’ Bites. Each event will have its own unique experience – from casual to seated – so you can choose which one is more your style. Regardless, the pairings will be fun, interesting and all about enjoying good food with good beer.

Posted by Kevin on 08/15/2013

In case you missed it – MIHO turned 3!

All of sudden we’re like a bright-eyed, rambunctious toddler that’s running, jumping and ready to take on the world. We decided to celebrate our b-day with a tribute to all things grilled. We cooked everything over an open flame and even invited some friends from the neighborhood to showcase their own talents.

Slick Rick holding it down with berkshire pork ribs on the grill…

Dave carving the spit-roasted local, pastured whole lamb…

Nina & Joe steaming some local shellfish in lobster broth…

Always got love for the vegetarians with the tofu kebobs…

Clam bake & grilled levain gloriousness…

make good with a merry selection of locally, handmade art & accessories…

Aloha Sunday bringing beach vibes to the hood…

Pow Wow with their exquisite vintage rentals…

Dart DJ even made the trip from LA to grace us with their lovely tunes…

NOK NOK created the best. ping. pong. table. ever…

Viva Pops spreading joy in the form of hand made popsicles…

When Juan and I (Kevin) look back on the last 3 years, the thing that brings us the most joy has been meeting each and everyone of YOU. Thank you for embracing us and encouraging us to keep making honest, responsibly-sourced food.

Thanks to all the cuties…

Thanks to all the kiddos…

Thanks to all you HOMI’s…

And a special thanks to Rad + In Love for the wonderful photos!
