Everyone in Los Angeles knows the best eats come from a truck not a restaurant and the best L.A. food trucks prove that. Open night and day, these popular food trucks travel from location to location across Southern California serving up a selection of food on the go. From the Kogi BBQ truck that started the food truck craze to others that specialize in ethnic food or sweets, it's easy to find good eats sure to please nearly everyone.
While L.A. food trucks often simply show up at scheduled locations, many food truck enthusiasts enjoy the hunt of tracking down their favorite truck in the city. Luckily for these foodies, the food trucks use the Internet and social media to communicate their locations and specials. (If you can't make it out to one of these trucks, doesn't mean you can't experience Epic Meal Time.)
In addition to posting their menus, schedules and planned locations on their official websites, many food trucks will inform their fans of other news, such as specials, using their Twitter and Facebook accounts. As if that was not enough, there are a bunch of secondary websites strictly devoted to tracking Los Angeles food trucks and providing food truck fans with and LA food truck map or a food truck locator/food truck tracker to get their food truck on.What are the best food trucks in LA?

Described as a coastal-infused cuisine, the Vizzi Truck cooks up high-end dishes such as white truffle popcorn, venison burgers, wagyu beef sliders and a one-of-a-kind foie gras peanut butter and jelly. Compared to other Los Angeles food trucks, you'll pay a bit more, around $10 for many items, but the quality ingredients make up for that dent in your wallet.Website
