We just want to start by saying this was an extremely difficult decision. If you love to eat in Los Angeles, you know we are so spoiled for choice when it comes to different cuisines, restaurants, and food trucks. It was so difficult to pick just five but we did it for you because we love you… and because we are kind and generous.
Our mouths are watering when we even think about LA food trucks and if you make it to the end of this list without your stomach growling, you’re a liar.
As we said, this is far from a comprehensive list, it was truly like choosing our favorite child. Los Angeles, Ca has so much to offer. If we missed your favorite truck, let us know so we can go try it out – and maybe add it to our next list!

What Is It?: Sorry to our vegan friends, but this food truck is all about the cheese. Grilled cheese to be more exact. Richeeze Melts is the culmination of the want for an amazing grilled cheese sandwich that we all loved as kids.
The guys who started it was sitting around talking about why there weren’t enough places to get a good grilled cheese sandwich and then thought, you know what, we can fix that. Richeeze was born and thanks Gouda-ness for that. If you haven’t checked out these gourmet food trucks, today’s the day.

The Poutine Brothers
Locations: Truck Calendar
What Is It?: Poutine Brothers has brought Canada’s national dish, poutine, to California. If you don’t know what poutine is, it’s a base of double-fried french fries topped with cheese curds, gravy, and sometimes meat.
They even source their cheese curds from Wisconsin – which is second best to Canada but unpasteurized cheese isn’t allowed to be shipped internationally.
Poutine Brothers was founded by Chris and Matt, two brothers who grew up playing club hockey and frequently touring throughout Canada. As kids, they discovered a meal in which french fries are a key ingredient… and it was love at first bite. They developed the concept for Poutine Brothers as adults, and after a test run among friends, realized they had a business opportunity on their hands. They promptly quit their corporate jobs in marketing and accounting, and Poutine Brothers was born.
They have all kinds of creative takes on Poutine like their short rib poutine or one that is inspired by Chicken Tikka Massala.
