About Los Angeles Food Trucks
Gourmet food trucks are a Los Angeles institution. Over 200 gourmet mobile food vendors roam the streets serving up everything from Korean BBQ to Sweet Treats to Grilled Cheese. The food truck that is most widely credited with reinstating the catering truck as a part of modern culture, Kogi BBQ Truck, has become a traveling landmark that serves Korean-Mexican fusion. In LA, you can grab a heavy metal themed burger and fries at Grill ‘Em All, eat authentic Mexican food at the Knockout Taco Truck or sit seaside with the Shrimp Pimp and eat seafood in Santa Monica. If you need to satisfy that sweet tooth head over to dessert trucks like the Sweets Truck, a mobile bakeshop and gourmet coffeehouse famous for cake pops and cookies, or grab an architecture inspired ice cream sandwich at Coolhaus. Some food trucks, like the Border Grill, are the offspring of well-known restaurants or chefs while others are a local chef’s first shot at LA stardom. The food carts and food trucks typically pull into parking lots with multiple food vendors or right up to the sidewalk where crowds of Angelenos pour out of their offices, studio lots and nightclubs to order a small feast.
