After having tried nearly two dozen food trucks over the course of the past year or so, I feel comfortable making this statement now.
Food trucks kind of suck.
Yeah, you read that right. Out of the two dozen trucks I've sampled, only a handful actually served decent food (like Kogi when Roy Choi himself is at the helm). Even fewer merited the prices charged. I don't understand food truck fanaticism at all.
You're probably wondering, "Well, why did you try so many then? Don't you have to track them down? That's a lot of effort for food that sucks." I'm no fool. During most instances, I waited under five minutes for my food, and I've simply had the good fortune of happening to be at the right place at the right time.
Or the wrong place at the wrong time, given the quality of most of the trucks.
During the next two weeks, I'll be sharing my disappointments and small triumphs in this realm of mobile eats. I may even do two posts a day to mow through this crap.
Enjoy. Or perhaps I should say...beware and sorry.
