The LA Food Fest in July was a glorious celebration of mobile food businesses and old school Mexican food trucks, dishing out generous portions of artisan ice creams, dim sum, sweet potato fries, and ethnic foods from around the world. (Street food is so hot in LA it’s become part of the dating scene. “My truck or yours?”)
Even for those on a budget, the Food Fest was truly a great value for unlimited tastings from tons of trucks, as well as addictive nut butter crunch from my friends at p.o.p. candy. (It was fun handing out samples to foodies, glaze-eyed from this fabulous food orgy yet as they stood in line for ice cream.)

At the Renegade Craft Fair I couldn’t get enough of 3 Fish Studios – particularly their linoleum block prints of real food trucks in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Both in black and white and in some versions hand painted with color, they’re an awesome homage to the street food scene.
