Yesterday on June 11, 2011 from 11am-6pm, at the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown LA, over 50 of LA’s most renowned and iconic food trucks gathered for an event to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Tickets cost $10 to enter which went to a good cause, and there were two stages with live bands, carnival games and more food than I have ever seen in my life!
My friends and I went to town with all the food trucks there. I had to try as much as I can for my blog. See what I do for my readers! I couldn’t move at the end I was so full lol, but it was fun and worth it. There was a big grass area where people chowed down at picnic tables, and had picnics on the grass while listening to the bands play with the skyline of Downtown LA in the background. It was a beautiful day.
There were more than 50 food trucks there, only made it to a couple of them but I think I made some pretty good choices. Now let’s start talkin’ bout the trucks! #FOODPORN

One of the more famous trucks that were there. Ludo Truck was created by Chef Ludovic Lefebvre, who was an executive chef at 2 of the most luxurious restaurants in LA. Chef Ludo has been seen on Top Chef Masters, Iron Chef America & The Today Show. Ludo Truck is a fried chicken truck with different types of fried Chicken. We ordered the famous Provencal Pepitte, (juicy boneless fried chicken balls infused with rosemary & herbs. Side sauces of Honey Whole-Grain Mustard, BBQ, & Bernaise Mayonnaise. Also comes with Ludo Slaw. We ordered a Honey-Lavendar Biscuit which takes a whole day to make! I definitely recommend this truck! Everything was unique and very flavorful.

WAFFLES DE LEIGE
We ordered a belgian waffle with strawberries, bananas with a scoop of banana and heath ice cream and WHITE CHOCOLATE SAUCE and whipped cream. This was amazing!!! So delicious but SO filling. I was definitely getting stuffed by this point lol. This truck is similar to the WAFELS & DINGES TRUCK in NYC, featured on the Food Network. Great dessert truck.
