Meet Our Food Trucks | Frysmith

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Frysmith elevates french fries from a lowly side dish to the main course. Hand-cut potatoes and sweet potatoes are fried in canola oil and topped with good things like Jidori chicken, heirloom pork belly, Angus beef and, of course, cheese! The menu ties together the myriad flavors of Southern California that husband-and-wife team Erik Cho and Brook Howell grew up with. Kimchi Fries feature kimchi paired with braised Kurobuta pork belly. The Rajas Fries team steak marinated shawarma style with roasted poblanos and caramelized onions. While making delicious, unique dishes is a priority, Frysmith also cares deeply about the environment and the way food is raised, sourcing only free-range chicken, cage-free eggs and factory-free pork. All packaging is biodegradable or easily recyclable and Frysmith even runs their truck’s engine off of recycled fry oil!

Meet Our Food Trucks | The Place LA

Monday, August 9th, 2010

The Place LA’s claim to fame is their pastrami, the recipe for which is a family secret. That recipe went through lots of fine-tuning to create succulent, flavorful meat. A traditional accompaniment to pastrami is mustard, but the owners felt that regular mustard overpowered their special pastrami, so they created their own mustard-based sauce to perfectly compliment the beef. Check out some great pics and more info about their info after the jump!

Meet Our Food Trucks | Dumpling Station

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Inspiration for the Dumpling Station truck came straight from the streets of Taiwan, where the night market food vendors set up as the sun goes down. Locals flock to their favorite pop-up restaurants to partake of a wide variety of culinary delights, including the dumplings from which Dumpling Station took its name. Owners Chris Aragon and Helen Pan used those little morsels of goodness as a jumping-off point for their truck, getting creative with fillings, like kimchi beef, pork and baby leek, or chicken and veggie.

Meet Our Food Trucks | Seabirds

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Vegetarians rejoice! The Seabirds truck is dedicated to delighting your taste buds with their plant-based menu. Be forewarned, however, that you won’t be alone in their line while waiting to place your order; you’ll be competing with fans of organic food and locavores, too, because Seabirds purchases most of their organic produce from Orange County farms. Actually, you should expect plenty of carnivores as well, because their Beer Battered Avocado Taco has been known to cause meat eaters to consider a culinary conversion.

Meet Our Food Trucks | Fresh Fries

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Who says that fries can’t be served as a dessert? You might be asking yourself just that question after you try the “Peanut Butter Cup” from Fresh Fries. For this unique offering, owners Nikole Marakarian and Roxana Javadi cover sweet potato fries in peanut butter and Nutella, then sprinkle a little powdered sugar on the top. For those of you who prefer your fries to stay savory, try some of their “Fiesta Fries” (topped with green chili guacamole and sour cream), or get them plain and dip them in one of their many sauces.
