In Los Angeles, the birthplace of the food truck movement, the streets are lined with an ever growing number of these "restaurant on wheels" operations.  Yet despite the growing number of food trucks, consumer interest has been diminishing over the last few years.  LA based website Roaming Hunger, however, is hoping to usher in a second wave.  

By compiling an online directory of local food vendors, Roaming Hunger founder Ross Resnick offers potential customers real time information about over 6,000 mobile vendors. And best yet, no vendor is too small, with Resnick going to extreme ends to track down some of the city's best local street vendors.  

Resnick hopes that with this resource made accessible to hungry customers, it will make great street dining options easy to find as well as offer more avenues for these food trucks to make additional income.  Read More

Starting November 1st, LAX's Terminal 4 will have a new addition: a permanent food truck. However it's not your typical food truck, it just looks like one. The shell of a food truck will be placed directly into the terminal and instead of driving away when the food is served, it will simply stay put.

The 'truck' will feature rotating chefs from the area's most popular food trucks. Not only does this give jetsetters the opportunity to try a new concept with each visit, it also gives tourists and visitors a first-hand (or bite) look at some of the region's most popular cuisine. Read More

When you're on-the-go (and who isn't these days?), it's difficult to find simple, healthy food options that are also convenient. 

Enter the healthy food truck epidemic. 

Healthy food trucks are so LA, so it makes sense that the City of Angels is full of them. (There are even juice trucks, bringing fresh-pressed produce on the move!)

If you prefer locally sourced ingredients, fear not, healthy friends: Trucks like Green Truck and the Plant Food for People truck are bringing local to the masses. We love LAist's full list of The Best Healthy Food Trucks in Los Angeles, which you can view here.
