A flood of new food trucks is hitting the streets. While Munchie Machine is still on track to premier at Bigfoot Lodge tomorrow and Papas Tapas tells us they are unveiling their traditional Spanish bar snacks soon, we ran into four more trucks that just started their engines or plan to in the next few weeks. Gourmet Genie To Go was hanging out on Abbot-Kinney yesterday, offering Middle Eastern tacos, with beef, chicken, lamb, and fish, in addition to pita wraps, kebab, falafel, cous cous, and dolmas, all with organic ingredients. On Friday night, we met Ta Bom!, a team of mothers and daughters who create tacos and burritos with a Brazilian vinaigrette, plus Coxinha croquette, Brazilian burgers and dogs, and even a Giselle wrap for the skinny-ninnies. And who are the next mobile restaurants coming up around the bend?
We’ve recently been followed on Twitter by two newbies making final preparations to get road-ready. Seabirds Truck promises healthy lunch eats for the O.C. on the city’s “original veggie truck,” and the Mambo Juice Truck is short on details, but promises it’s coming soon with a “different experience.” Juice tacos? Probably not. But make sure to stay tuned to find out and follow these guys on Twitter to stay on their trails.
