Super StrEAT Brings Together Good Food and Car Culture

We help resurrect Wheels N Meals at our first ever Super StrEAT car meet and food truck fest in San Jose

Mar 5, 2018

We got a lot of love for Bay Area; in fact, we try to make the 1-hour flight or 5- to 6-hour drive at least a few times a year so we can check out the NorCal car scene—a scene filled with as many great quality builds as we have here in Los Angeles. But unlike Southern California, the Bay doesn't have as many events or meets as we do, and the aftermarket community is always hungry for weekend activities. Knowing this, we put our powers together with Cary Inayoshi to resurrect his semi-retired, but far from forgotten, series of car meets called .

"I used to be a food truck owner and started Wheels N Meals as a place for me and my food truck friends to sell more food," Cary explained. "We thought, 'why don't we market it toward the automotive community?'" Sure enough, combining a free car meet with bomb ass food from local trucks was huge a hit. Wheels N Meals lasted from '10 until '14, then took a back seat when Cary sold his food truck and focused on other projects like his annual Shukai car show.

After a four-year hiatus, it was finally time to relaunch the food truck and car meet concept in the form of Super StrEAT. Cary helped us secure one of the main parking lots of in Eastern San Jose and the turnout couldn't have been any better!

With only a week of promotion, the main parking lot was full thirty minutes prior to the meet even starting. And the diversity of cars surprised us from Huracans and R8s to Civics and 240s. There was even a good amount of motorcycle and domestic guys to throw into the mix.

As far as food goes, Cary curated the event so there was a good variety: Tastee Bytes is an American fusion truck, Takoz Mod Mex offering Mexican food and Seoul of Taipei brought an Asian fusion spin. The food trucks all sold out of food an hour before the meet finished—a sheer sign that there was a lot of folks that came out, much more than what we all expected.

We're hoping to make Super StrEAT a regular thing so remember to follow for updates. Thanks to a great venue and huge turnout from our first event, you can be sure this won't be our last. Stay tuned for our next event, and don't forget to come early and come hungry!

Special thanks to the teams and vendors that came out strong: District 10, High Octane Tuners, Audi Gruppe Silicon Valley, Darkside Racing, Mansu, Speed Element, Inspire, Illiminate, Van Kulture, WagonSteez, Weapon-R, HHwHH and Supreme Poke.
