I love that LA has such a huge variety of food trucks all over the city. I guess the weather here really makes for easy eating on the fly, hunh? But it can be really hard to track those trucks down, and a lot of them tend to stick to regular locations which are often on the other side of town. So we love it when there's a bunch of food trucks all at one place. A sampling from each truck? Yes, please!

Almost every Monday night, Bob, Ruby and I head to Los Feliz for a weekly gathering of food trucks called On the Lot. They have different areas of LA they set up at on different nights, but on Monday nights On the Lot is in Los Feliz—which is the neighborhood next door to us. Eating there has become a weekly ritual, and we love meeting up with friends there, too. They announce their weekly lineup on Twitter, so it's fun to see what new trucks are coming each week.

Here are a few of my favorites from past visits...


These Crispy Pork & Shrimp Potstickers with Curry Aioli & Sweet Soy Reduction from the Asian Cravings truck...


Lobster Tacos from Cousins Main Lobster...totally the California version of a Lobster Roll!


Strawberry shaved ice with blue honey boba and drizzled with condensed milk from the Fluff Ice truck...



...and the crazy awesome variety of boba milk tea drinks from the Boba Truck. I get a decaf almond milk tea so that I'm not wide awake that night and take home a jasmine milk tea for the next day's treat. While there are some weekly regulars, most of the trucks change every week, so we've been able to try so many new ones. Do you guys have food truck nights like this where you live? It's seriously one of my favorite things to do in LA!
