Truck Name: Reggae Chicken Truck
Bringing a taste of Jamaica to Angelinos. From Jerk chicken plates to island themed stuffed burritos, Reggae Chicken has something for everyone from vegetarians to meat eaters and all we have to say is one bite will make you feel irie and after two bites you will be “JAMMIN”
From the origins of Jamaican roadside food stands to the streets of LA, Reggae Chicken is a mobile food truck that is throwing it back to old school Jamaica one plate and reggae beat at a time. You are guaranteed to enjoy the island classics that will put a little “rock-steady” in your step.
