#FIJIWaterLimeTruck Pop-up raised $9,821.00 for Charity - Willing Hearts.

On 15 and 16 August 2014, The Lime Truck, winner of Food Network's "The Great Food Truck Race", in a collaboration between FIJI Water and Kerbside Gourmet whipped up some great food at Orchard Gateway.

It was a pop-up event that had all proceeds going to Willing Hearts (, a local charity / soup kitchen that provides 3000 meals daily to the needy in Singapore.

For the 2 days, the #FIJIWaterLimeTruck raised $9821.00 for Willing Hearts. For all of you who were also there, thank you for your generosity in buying the food.

There sure was a huge crowd and the food was sold out quite quickly. All thanks to these people who bought a few sets, they helped raised funds for Willing Hearts.

Willing Hearts do need volunteers, to help prepare the food and also to deliver the food. When I was more energetic, I woke up early on Saturdays before sunrise and took a bus the soup kitchen and cut and cut and cut lots of onions, vegetables etc. If you have time, go volunteer your time and energy!

This truck you see is actually Kerby. I am sure you have seen Kerby without this temporary green skin at my pop up events.  I was standing there looking at them serve out food and the crew are such happy people.

Here's a short clip that I took on Instagram on 15 August.
Love the way they shouted the orders that came in.

The menu for the 2 days. Each was $10 and it all came with a bottle of FIJI Water.

Braised Pork Belly Taco with Tomatillo Pico de Gallo and Sriracha.
Oh, it was so so lovely, the pork belly and the Sriracha that was drizzled over it. The fatty pork belly went very well with the Mexican salsa. It cuts through the fats of the pork belly and quite yummy with the hot sauce.

Fresh Fish Ceviche Tostada
The fish cured with citrus juices was very appetizing. One of it is not enough and it makes you even more hungry!

Blue Crab Jicama Taco
A very different kind of taco. Never thought that the bang kwang we usually eat can be made into tacos. Ideas for the next house party!

I hope they come back for Round 2 soon!
