NOTE: Updated with more info on the trucks shown (see below)
I recently posted on tracking down my first gourmet food truck here in LA, after months of trying (albeit halfheartedly). Well when it rains, it pours. Mass sighting. Food trucks operated by some of the city's hippest young chefs are dishing up comfort food aplenty, while giving the blogosphere and Chowhounds of the world lots to buzz about. Hitting the food truck jackpot feels like discovering some great flea market find or amazing online reseller that no one else has discovered yet. Of course, it's nothing like that, but still... this is making me wish I could work in mid-Wilshire instead... so many choices every day!

Pic 2: Dogtown Dogs (gourmet hot dogs), Green Truck (organic)
Pic 3: India Jones (Indian), Ko Manna (Korean BBQ), Bool (Korean BBQ tacos)
This great blog has a TON of info about virtually all of the LA food trucks. I would like to have that job. And virtually all of these trucks have Twitter feeds too.
