Get Fresh-Off-the-Grill Food This Summer

Happy Valley is home to some amazing restaurants with authentic cuisine, but the best part of our summer variety is the many fresh-off-the-grill food options. 

Best Summer Bites for Happy Valley Visitors

It’s no secret that Happy Valley is home to a variety of farmers’ markets and all-natural eats, and some of our favorite fresh-food vendors are pulling out all the stops for the upcoming spring season. You’ll even find some brand-new restaurants in town that are sure to offer up a selection of fabulously fresh, spring-inspired menu items.

Food Trucks Bring a New Kind of Flavor to Happy Valley

Food trucks are hardly a new concept. They’ve always been common fixtures in big cities like New York and L.A., serving your typical “street foods” like hot dogs and tacos. But with their resurgence in recent years, food trucks have become just as popular in suburban areas, and their menus have gotten a whole lot more creative.

Happy Valley has been lucky enough to benefit from both of these things, with three amazing food trucks now serving our streets with just about every kind of food you could want.
