Food "Truckapalooza" Comes to the Miracle Mile
When Variety first moved to 5900 Wilshire, the landlord promised to land a restaurant in the building.
That wound up not happening. But at least the building management has been aggressive in attracting L.A.'s ubiquitous food trucks to our area.
While most of the trucks park in front of Variety's old offices (next to E! Entertainment) -- I counted 15 there the other day -- a bunch usually stop in front of 5900 Wilshire as well.
On Thursday, nine trucks showed up to take part in 5900 Wilshire's "truckapalooza," including Phamish, Nom Nom, Baby’s Badass Burgers, No Reservations, FrySmith, Papas Tapas, Flying Pig, The Good Karma Dessert Truck and King Kone. 100.3 The Sound, which also is in our building, provided the tunes. I hit the Nom Nom truck -- which hadn't visited our parts in a while. (I used to like it better than Phamish... but sorry Nom Nom, I think Phamish may have won me over.)
