The Dim Sum & Grilled Cheese Trucks

Seems like food trucks are all the rage and although I eagerly follow countless numbers of these vehicles on twitter, I've yet to catch any of these elusive street meats outside of the infamous Kogi BBQ truck that started it all.

Last weekend though, I had the good fortune of being able to try the Dim Sum Truck, The Grilled Cheese Truck and Kogi truck all in one night as they were all parked outside of The Brig bar in Venice. Luckily, the lines weren't too long, maybe because it wasn't lunch time or a big food fest, because in total it took only 20 minutes to wait in line and walk away with my orders. The funny part while ordering is that the truck's windows are really high up, so I had to reach up on tiptoes and shout my order to be heard. I commented to the guy that they should have a stepping stool, lol.

Anyway, first I tried some yummy sticky rice wrapped in a lotus leaf from the Dim Sum Truck, which was really good as it had pieces of sausage and full sized shrimp inside.

I then shared a Cheddar Grilled Cheese sandwich on wheat and a Cheesy Mac and Rib sandwich filled with macaroni and cheese with sharp cheddar and pieces of BBQ pork, which was beyond fantastic. I'm hungry just thinking about it, take a look, the photos practically ooze yum.

Besides following these popular food trucks, LAist has a great listing of twitter handles to follow.


  1. I love sticky rice! But I'm not so sure about a mac n cheese rib sandwich...
    Amazing what a big city will support! It will be interesting to see if this trend sticks around.

  2. Oh, I'm getting so hungry now!

  3. i freaking loved the grilled cheese truck, that mac and rib sandwich was amazingly delicious. i want another one, haha.

  4. I think YOU should start a cupcake truck in LA.

  5. A grilled cheese truck?? OMG...can you ask them to make a trip to Florida?

  6. What? That's crazy. I visited/blogged about the grilled cheese truck too. It's fun trying to track down the trucks.

  7. I've yet to eat from any of the fabled food trucks. A friend and I did futilely chase the Kogi truck down Cahuenga one night though. So close...

  8. I was just reading about the taco trucks. The grilled cheese sounds awesome. Waiting for this new trend to catch on on the East coast!!!
