Food Truck Files: November

The Food Truck phenomenon is still trending upward in the city that made it cool to eat from a truck.  With new trucks trying to find their niche to technologies that seem made for the food truck business — it’s riding high and people are waiting in a 150 person deep line to try the “Grilled Cheese Truck“!

This month I bring you a truck that has found an ironic niche and one that has capitalized on the growing desire to fuse the Los Angeles taco with Korean flavors.

Vizzi Truck

The Vizzi Truck — Unique. Upscale. Catering.  A food truck that has decided that the decadence and taste factor of their food is only part of the food truck puzzle.  Why not add a little entertainment and benefit the community at the same time.  The Vizzi Truck mission is to provide the community with a fine and sustainable dining experience as well as spotlight the hidden talents of the art community.  The truck fully equipped with TV’s and a stereo system is the perfect spot to showcase new and upcoming musicians, DJ’s, and film makers.

Oh and the food!  A menu I guarantee you haven’t seen offered in the truck community.  Osso Tacos, a Wedge Salad and Braised Wagyu Beef are only a few of the offerings.  It’s definitely not hard to find yourself struggling to decide what dishes to try!  After a serious debate about what to order, we came to a compromise.  Bacon Grilled Cheese Please!  Grueyre, Carmelized Onions, Bleu-Bacon Fondue, and a Winter Tomato is a combination that is melt in your mouth awe inspiring!
