We spoke with Joni, The Accidental Yogist, who gave us the lowdown on her adventures in the LA Food Truck Scene.
Roaming Hunger: How many trucks have you eaten from in LA?
Joni: 54 plus various other roach coaches. Two of which are actually trailers, Derb’s and Let’s Be Frank.
Roaming Hunger: Wow, what got you started on this mission?
Joni: I heard about Kogi and frequented their truck, waiting in 45 minute+ lines. I then heard about other trucks and realized I could avoid the wait.
Roaming Hunger: What trucks have you been known to frequent lately?
Joni: I’m into the vietnamese trucks right now, especially Eat Phamish and Nom Nom Truck.
Roaming Hunger: Any other food preferences?
Joni: I’m a pescatarian and recently I’m sick of tortillas, so I’ve been visiting the Gastrobus, Lomo Arigato, India Jones and Don Chow (for the chow fun.)
Roaming Hunger: Why do you like food trucks? What’s the main appeal?
Joni: I’ll eat wherever food is good and affordable. I also like to ride my bike to get my meals.
We commend Joni for her dedication and support to the street food movement— 54 trucks is no small task.
