Food trucks are a staple in the Los Angeles culinary scene. These restaurants-on-wheels are perfect when you want to grab a quick bite on the go. Here are six of our favorites – go find them ASAP!
Craving authentic Korean barbecue? Thanks to this truck, you don’t have to travel all the way to Koreatown to find it! These delicious Korean tacos were introduced to the Los Angeles food truck scene in 2008, and have been fan favorites ever since! Kogi is known for its amazing short rib taco, and at $2 each, you’re definitely getting a bang for your buck.
You can’t miss the brightly painted doors that decorate this food truck. The creative, flavor-packed grain bowls made from chefs with previous experience at Blue Door and Bestia are perfect for a healthy (and trendy!) lunch. Their top selling bowl is the Union Lamb, a delicious mix of harissa braised lamb, goat cheese, sautéed vegetables, and a red wine vinaigrette. For dessert, try the Pink Lemonade Cream Puffs!
Another taco spot to add to the list – and this one might be your top pick! Chef Wes Avila crafts these amazing gourmet tacos. With experience working with world-renowned chefs in California and Europe, Wes wanted to add a fine-dining twist to the average taco. His weekly menus feature fresh, locally-grown ingredients and flavor combinations that are anything but ordinary! His best seller? The scallop tostadas with Santa Barbara uni.
L.A. finally has some real competition against New York bagels! These freshly cooked bagels are seriously delicious. Try “The Game Over” – a killer combo of eggs, bacon, tomato, beer cheese and jalapeño spread on a cheddar bagel. This truck will definitely step up your breakfast game!
