Who doesn’t love a food truck! Whether you are after a good dose of Mexican, fully-loaded bagels, deliciously crispy fried chicken, a cheese toastie with a twist or even a sweet dessert, L.A.’s got you covered!

Popping up all over the City of Angels, the food trucks have become synonymous with quality food, great customer service, an unbeatable atmosphere and a damn good time. No matter what your cuisine of choice is, you can guarantee that there will be a truck roving nearby to suit your taste buds.

People come from all over the country to experience the L.A. food truck scene, so it would be a crime to not try some for yourself whilst visiting this mecca of mobile cuisine. Great as a passing snack or a late-night bite, make sure you turn up hungry and are prepared to wait – it’s no coincidence that the best trucks always have the longest lines!

El Chato Taco Truck

On the corner of Olympic Boulevard and La Brea, El Chato boasts some of the best mexican food in L.A. Known for its delicious flavours and attention to detail, the al pastor quesadilla is a must, with its smoky chipotle that is so good it will have you craving it for days - Sriracha who? At El Chato, there’s just something special about inhaling a truly authentic Mexican dish around the bright lights of a taco truck that rarely sees a line get under 20 people. There truly is no better late night snack!


Created by a designer and a real estate agent, the Coolhaus serves premium ice cream sandwiches around L.A. that are named after architects and architectural movements, which they have nicknamed ‘Farchitecture’ (Food + Architecture). These signature cool treats have since become known as ‘sammies’ and are served in edible wrappers - yes, you read that correctly! From original cookie favourites like Choc Chip to unique creations such as Snickerdoodle Candy Corn and Confetti Whoopie Pie paired with ice cream flavours such as Chocolate, Strawberry, Choc-Mint, Pizza, Chicken & Waffles and Peking Duk, and you’ve got an icy treat like nothing you’ve ever tasted before. Vegan and gluten-free flavours are also available.

The Grilled Cheese Truck

For all that melty cheesy goodness that you love, you can’t go past The Grilled Cheese Truck. A favourite of locals, there are four trucks on the road ready and waiting to serve up a delicious range of comfort food. Keep things simple with a standard cheese toastie, or amp up the flavour factor with a fully-loaded option complete with sharp cheddar cheese, smoked BBQ pork and a rich and gooey mix of macaroni and cheese. Can’t find something you like on the menu? Just ask! The team are all about the cheesy experience and will be more than happy to customise a toastie just for you.

Yeastie Boys

After a strong debut at Coachella in 2015, Yeastie Boys is L.A.’s first and only bagel truck. Hand-rolled and baked fresh every morning, the New York-style bagels are hearty and filled with an overload of delicious flavours. And at this unique food truck it’s all about the experience, and the guys behind the bagels are charmingly hilarious, which really helps makes your bagel experience that much better. Keep in mind that all bagels are made to order, so you made need to wait 15-20 minutes for your creation. Just make sure your turn up hungry, as these dough-heavy creations require two hands!
