Food Trucks and Beer!

If you live in Los Angeles, chances are you have eaten from a food truck. Even more likely, you probably have a favorite one. Not from LA? If you will be staying in one of the Los Angeles hotels near Little Toykyo this Spring, you can get a taste of what LA food trucks are all about at Food Truck Haven at the Angel City Brewery.

Angel City Brewery started off as a dream to build a great brewery in Los Angeles. It moved to its current location in the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles in 2010 and began brewing in 2012. Now that the brewery is fully up and running, it hosts Food Truck Haven the last Saturday of every month. Food Truck Haven boasts itself as a “modern day picnic in Little Tokyo.” There will be fourteen different food trucks on-site, some of which include Belly Bombz, Flippin Yolk, Me So Hungry, Bun Truck, and Sugar Babies Cupcakery. That’s right. Not only will there be food trucks, but dessert trucks as well!

Aside from all the delicious food, you can’t forget the fact that Angel City is a brewery! Take a look inside and go on a tour. See what the inside of a brewery looks like and learn about the process of making beer. Angel City currently brews three different types of beers: Eureka! Wit, which is a California take on a Belgian Wit, Angeleno IPA a medium-bodied beer with bold flavors, and Angel City Pilsner, a dry medium-bodied beer. Once you are finished taking the tour, there will be board games setup for everyone to play. So grab an ice cold beer and see what Angel City is all about.

A section of the Hester Street Fair is dedicated to food trucks. Coolhaus of Culver City will be back again with delicious ice cream sandwiches. Other options include lobster rolls, ceviche, Italian food, crepes, dosas, poutine, musubi, banh mi sandwiches, Korean food, and much more.

If food and fashion don’t suit your fancy, there are plenty of community booths to check out. The Hollywood Central Park booth borrows directly from New York. It’s a 10-year project based around creating a 44-acre street level public park between Hollywood Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard above the 101 freeway.  The project is an efficient use of community space that will hopefully create new jobs and promote a healthy and clean environment.

The Hester Street Fair is located in the lost on Hollywood Boulevard and Argyle Avenue right next to the W Hollywood Hotel. On August 25, the Hester Street fair will bid farewell to the summer with two stages featuring some of Los Angeles’ biggest bands. Over 120 specialty vendors will also be selling their wares.
