Because the food truck craze originated in Los Angeles, it is not surprising that the city has some of the most exciting mobile chefs in the country. Food trucks like Jogasaki Sushi Burrito are reinventing old classics with new twists, such as the spicy tuna burrito, which perfectly fuses Japanese and Mexican flavors.
One of the most renowned food trucks in the city, Coolhaus serves craft ice-cream sandwiches made with artisanal products. While Coolhaus now has two brick-and-mortar locations, its truck still travels to beaches and festivals around Los Angeles.
The Urban Oven cooks wood-oven pizzas to order. Toppings include locally sourced ingredients and high-quality meats. One of the standouts at this truck is the bacon and onion pizza.
Seafood fans may want to seek out the Lobsta Truck, which serves a traditional New England-style lobster roll among other delicious options. While several other lobster and seafood trucks have emerged, the Lobsta Truck is widely known for its generous portion sizes.
For people craving Mexican food, El Matador makes one of the best al pastor tacos in the city. The truck remains stationary at the corner of Western and Lexington across from La Descarga.
