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.
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
