Yay for LA Food Trucks!

Can you believe there are dozens of food trucks on the streets of LA now? I am not just talking about your typical Mexican food truck, but rather gourmet Korean tacos, cupcakes, dim sum, and so much more. A few weeks ago many of them participated in the First Annual Street Food Fest. I've only tried a couple of these trucks' fare but I plan to try a whole lot more.

One that I have tried is the NomNom Truck which serves up Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwiches). The pork and lemongrass chicken in the yummy baguettes were delicious. This is great for folks like us on the west side with limited access to Vietnamese food. We also stumbled upon the Dim Sum Truck on its soft launch day and tried their very tasty turnip cakes (see photo above). I can't wait to try more truck food!

The best way to keep track of where these food trucks are is Twitter. But if you don't feel like signing up for that, this awesome site : Find LA Food Trucks has widgets with all of the Twitter feeds.. it's a one truck stop! : )
