Food Trucks Specialty
This roving taco truck is a passion project from Chef Wes Avila (a name that comes with some serious chops, as he's done stints at spots like Le Comptoir and Church & State). The menu changes daily, depending on what's available at the farmers market, or what Chef Wes happens to be experimenting with at the moment. Follow their Facebook page for updates on the menu and their current location. Most recently, they've been on a tour of the city's Blue Bottle locations, setting up at a different outpost each day of the week.
The California Dog with avocado, arugula, basil aioli, tomatoes, and fried onions is pretty much not your average hot dog.
This less-greasy-than-average food truck fare comes care of Wolfgang Puck and his family. Serving gourmet omelets, tasty sandwiches (think spicy veggie with a fried egg to a tuna melt with dill, sweet onions, and sprouts), and great salads, this is perfect for lunch-on-the-go. They're all around LA and at the Los Feliz Farmers Market every Sunday, where they use the fresh market produce to create delicious original small plates.
The Grilled Cheese Truck
One of the most popular trucks at The Brig, lines here tend to be long—and justified by the intense (and delicious) grilled cheese sandwiches.
We chose the Sag Paneer and the Coconut Yellow Curry: Super spicy and totally excellent.
Food trucks are a staple of LA's cultural identity. While they may be popping up in every major city across the world, it all started in Los Angeles. More specifically, it started with the Mexican food trucks that drove to construction sites, until the concept was revolutionized by Roy Choi and his Kogi truck, where he invented a hybrid of Korean and Mexican deliciousness (think kimchi on tacos instead of salsa).
Their super fresh Maine Lobster Roll—toasted split top with butter—is unparalleled in L.A. food truckdom.
From Michelin-starred kitchens to his pop-up restaurant, LudoBites, and finally the truck, Ludovic brings some amazing fried chicken to the LA food scene. Perfectly crispy and deliciously seasoned, it's worth tracking down.
South Philly Experience
This truck serves Philly-style cheese steaks (with the correct slang to match) all over town, including right on Abbot Kinney on Saturdays. You can order "wit" or "witout" cheese; we recommend extra whiz.
Takoyaki are little flour balls filled with octopus or shrimp—and then topped with ponzu or Japanese mayo. Delicious.
