The Coolest Food Truck I've Ever Seen. (Also, Kogi's in OC This Weekend)

The Coolest Food Truck I've Ever Seen. (Also, Kogi's in OC This Weekend)
Edwin Goei

There's been some recent news in the food truck craze hitting LA -- the trend that everyone knows started with a little something called Kogi.

 
LAist recently updated its list of food trucks, which seems to grow exponentially by the minute. And the LA Times' food blog Daily Dish had a lengthy story on a still-in-development grilled cheese truck by a chef who used to work right here in Costa Mesa's Habana.

But you want to know about the insanely cool oddity you see above right?

Well, this Road-Warrior-Meets-Babe-The-Pig Death Van is only found in Seattle, where I just happened to be last Labor Day weekend.  I wasn't looking for it.  It kind of just found me.  And when something like this crosses your path, as it did that rainy afternoon, you stop and you take a picture. 

If I squealed (I didn't), it would've been appropriate.  Unfortunately, I was stuffed.  I had just had a massive lunch.  Otherwise, I would've sampled what the pig had to offer, which was of course, something pig-related: pulled pork sandwiches, to be exact.

The pig-on-wheels is officially called Maximus Minimus, but here's a challenge to all you Simpsons fans reading.  What would Homer say about it?

P.S. Oh yeah.  Kogi's in OC tomorrow, Saturday:

5:30PM-9PM@Active Ride Shop - 1160 E Imperial Hwy in Brea
10:30PM-Midnight@The Huddle - 741 Baker St in Costa Mesa
