Mai Missions: Food Truck Chasing #1
I have to apologize to all mai fellow foodies out there.
As a fashionista, I gotchu. Being up fashion finds; I pride myself on being on it like a bonnet. As a foodie, I’m last season’s kogi taco. Lately Los Angeles has been tearin it up with the food truck trend and I’ve been too holed up in my office at Extra or on set at How Do I Look to experience the endless creative concoctions of banana pudding, sweet potato fries, or Korea pub grub. But this week I made it happen! After a long day of work I threw 2 foodie friends, a hungry huntin hubz, and my trusty Twitter navigator in the car to go stalk out The Green Truck, AnhJoo LA (who are the shiz for replying back asap), and Tauro’s Taco’s. Some advice for any of you to take this on:
1. Eat light at each stop! Do share your portions so you can cram more trucks in
2. Partake in the festivities the trucks may be parked at. Art shows, music festivals, support the community, and sometimes free booze for everyone but the DD, (designated driver.)
3. Pack the car with lotsa napkins. If you’re Asian, or a mom, this is probably already covered.
4. Perfect flippin a beotch (U turn) to avoid causing chaos, or getting a ticket. You’ll almost always be flying past the truck looking for it. Or you’re too busy nom nomming the last stop you ate.
Special thanks to Jedmeister for bringing the grub alive with his gorilla style editing.
