Louks Gourmet Greek Togo | Street Food LA:Food Truck Profile

455

To hulu or not to hulu, that is the question.  Last-week we had the fortunate pleasure of hanging out at this new LA truck hub at Westside Media Center in WestLa the home of HULU, E entertainment and Style network.

Unfortunately, we did not have a chance encounter over a Gyro with Chelsea “Handler” Lately, but that’s Hollywood for you. Perhaps another day, another event and another Gourmet Food Truck. And now without any further ado we bring you: “Louks Gourmet Greek To Go

Truck Name:    Louks Gourmet Greek Togo

Truck Specialty:

All Greek all of the time. This healthy Greek eatery comes to you in both Orange County and Los Angeles, with 2 trucks in operation. From Gyros and Greek Salads to Lam-Burgers and quite possibly the sweetest thing I have ever had; the “loukoumades”, sweet mini greek donut balls loaded with a variety of sweet toppings will keep you coming back for more and more.

Truck Mission/about:

Louks’ goal is to bring the most authentic and delicious Greek food to the streets of LA and Orange County.

With that being said, they import ingredients directly from Greece including cheeses, extra virgin olive oil, oregano, salt, kalamata olives, dakos and honey in order to ensure food has best possible flavor. Additionally, they use fresh chicken breasts and beef fillets in their skewers and New Zealand lamb chops with fresh lemon juice. Only the best top shelf items for this gourmet truck, contrary to what you think. They also utilize fresh produce, use canola oil for frying and always prepare food to order. This allows them to provide a quality product to customers that is consistent every-time.
