The food truck scene in Los Angeles has redefined the term “street food”. No longer are hot dog carts or taco stands considered the hot commodity when eating on the run.
L.A. residents are blessed with endless options of mobile cuisines from gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches to fresh lobster shipped directly from Maine. In the past couple of years the food truck game has imploded from a trend to a full blown phenomenon. What started of as 10-15 trucks mobbin through the streets, is now a fleet consisting of more than 200 diverse trucks.
The peeps over at Thrash Lab decided to tackle the food truck phenomenon for their Subculture Club series. During the mini-doc the crew shows the good, the bad, and the ugly that make up the food truck scene. Take a second to hear how/why food truck legends Coolhaus, Grilled Cheese Truck, and Slap Yo Mama got their start.
