The Place LA
The Place LA is essentially a Diner on wheels bringing the best of the menu with them. Tacos, Burritos, Pastrami, and Burgers are just a few of ‘The Place’s’ menu high-lights.
Brick and mortar restaurants watch out, not only does this truck serve all of the late night munchies throughout the day but they also drive around town with swagger. Adorned with a hip hop style graffiti style mural of the Los Angeles cityscape, “The Place LA” is a catering truck with street style and some added attitude.

Strangest question asked:
Can I get a Quesadilla with cheese? (A quesadilla comes with cheese by default and hence the name)
To Blair High School in Pasadena and the students that we met on our visit. The PlaceLA gives back to the school and its students wherever possible. We also owe an extra special thanks to our trusty lens-keeper, Rich Allen from Sagittarian Images for coming down to Pasadena on this cloudy yet beautiful LA day. Where was this truck yesterday on 4/20? Kicking myself because, we should have looked ‘em up on Twitter.
