The food truck scene has had a huge impact on LA, and there are now food trucks to be found throughout the city. Venice Beach is visited by a variety of different food trucks, from grilled cheese sandwiches to simple tacos to Indian street food snacks, but, if you want something slightly more sophisticated and indulgent, head on over to one of these unbeatable gourmet food trucks.
