there are a lot of good ones in the bay. also a good share of dog-schitt nasty ones too tho. I've gotten pretty good at spotting the faulty ones.
my #1 rule of thumb is to never mess with one person trucks. same person handling food and money is gross.

Taco trucks and bbq trucks have been around forever, good ones too. Yet most white people pretty much skipped over them.
But overprice your al pastor and/or throw some spring mix on a chopped beef sandwich and now these trailers are like white people crack.
But I will go ahead and endorse the pork belly, kim chee ssam at the East Side Kings trailer in the Grackle parking lot though.
HarveyCanal said:White people have driven this trend in this town. In fact, I could probably get even more specific and say white people who have moved here from California within the past 8 years have driven this trend in this town. And not only is it easy to identify them, it is even easier to hate them.

Fools act like they've never seen a taco truck before.
trzakhstan said:Eat St. is produced in Canada, they featured a taco truck parked by a beach on Vancouver Island in BC. The people there claimed it was the best burrito they had ever eaten.
trzakhstan said:One major US city requires food trucks to pre-cook all food, allowing hot food only from heating lamps. Another only allows trucks to stay parked for as long as there is a line of people waiting on the sidewalk. I'm guessing several cities limit the number of licenses, but allow the license holders to resell them at market prices after getting a year-long or similar license.
The problem came when the other commissaries and truck owners saw money and basically just prostituted the whole culture. So what you ended up with was 15 so-so trucks parked on Mid-Wilshire, the city unhappy, a mediocre food product and all the truck owners cannibalizing each other's business."

Hiller is not alone in feeling that what was once an exciting, underground food scene driven by a punk rock aesthetic and an exploratory mentality is swiftly becoming a mainstream, bottom-line-obsessed maze of infighting and politics.
When Kogi started, there were only a few new-wave food trucks on the scene; now that number is hovering near 200, says Hiller. And where experimental entrepreneurs once dominated, corporate players such as Jack in the Box and Sizzler are entering the fray.
picoandsepulveda said:Also wondering if it would be possible to have a truck that sells food with weed baked into it. a sort of "cannabistro" on wheels would be hot imo. maybe strictly serving those with cannabis club cards? you could make stops at all the dispensaries around town and serve food to all the patients ;) i know there would be tons of bs and red tape to get that off the ground but it might be kind of cool.
