I have been writing a bit about the gourmet food trucks that show up all over the city. Some have a fixed schedule. Some show up at events.
Today I posted this on facebook: This food truck thing is pretty serious - this is about the truck "great balls on tires" which does a lot of meatball items.
Great stuff, lots of creative spirit and talent, less expense than brick and mortar restaurants and a lot of keen competition assures a lot of... bang for the $$$$.
Most of the folks operating the trucks are terrific people. There are some chain trucks at this point but the ones that are owner operated and owned can be good.
The one off trucks that follow their own heart and creative spirit are generally the ones you walk away from shaking your head as in ... how did they do that .... great meal ... great value. Hopefully it will not become too commercial with too much corporate involvement in the future. Some of these trucks are already straying too far from the cool concepts. The portions are getting smaller and some are more concerned with presentation and that " L.A. Trendy Nonsense" that many of the expensive restaurants are accused of having.
