Special Thanks:

To Alex Chu for having us sample a taste of what his truck is bringing to Los Angeles in the coming weeks. We appreciate the addition to the Gourmet Food Truck Fleet here in our city. Thanks to the Tlofts on Tennessee for providing ample parking and a great backdrop for the tasting. We also have to thank Joe Briscoe from Briscoe Photo for coming down and snapping some shots for our feature. Lastly we must thank the Street food LA Crew for introducing us to the Dim Sum Truck in the VIP area. It was great to see some familiar faces today. Had a blast with Carina Ost(Uncouth Gourmands), Patrick Green(LA Street Food Ap) and our Street Food Vendors who are bringing their mobile restaurants to a city near you: Mong Skillman(Mandoline Grill), Michelle Grant(The Grilled Cheese Truck) and Brook Howell(Fry Smith) keep up the good work!
