Frijolito Cafe Coffee Truck

While having dinner at the Food Truck Haven, I came across coffee truck Frijolito.  They said that they are a coffee truck with a Latin twist. There’s not too many food trucks that serves coffee, so I decided to give them a try.

As I walked up to the cart, I noticed a sign that said: check into yelp to get a free gift. The gift was a free hot chocolate. Sure, why not? The young lady asked if I wanted a Mexican hot chocolate or an American hot chocolate. In fact, she suggested I could get it iced, since it was so hot that night.

I decided on a iced Mexican hot chocolate, and paid $0.50 to have it made with soy milk instead of whole milk. The two ladies were very friendly and they provided quick service. I even did a little hockey ribbing with the young lady, who was an LA Kings fan boasting about her team in my Orange County

Why Frijolito’s?

Frijolito, can be a term of endearment when Latinos refer to a, Little Bean. So, in order to bring you a mobile coffee shop with a Latin twist, it was a “no brainer”…Frijolito’s was dreamt up, and he came to live. Our goal was to bring to the streets, a grassroots approach to café con pan dulce, or coffee and sweet bread. Let’s face it…coffee is in our Latin blood. Whether it’s smell of moms café con leche en la mañana, a quick shot of espresso to wake you up after a big ol’ lunch, or just a little cafésito with something sweet after dinner, coffee is a big part of our Latin culture.

Aug 22: Free Orange Chicken

Its not a “real” food truck, but its free food… 

Article by LA Times 

 

There’s a Panda Express food truck. And it’s full of free orange chicken.

Panda Express has a food truck. And yes, that food truck is full of orange chicken.

Be a food snob if you need to — but when there’s a plate of hot, sticky, crunchy orange chicken in front of you, I dare you not to eat it.

The truck will be launching a nationwide tour, and is headed to the KCRW Chinatown Summer Nights in Los Angeles on Aug. 22.

And all that orange chicken will be free. The truck will be doling out free samples of orange chicken and white rice, along with a Pepsi.

Next to the truck, an “orange chicken lounge” where guests can relax and eat orange chicken. And if you’re a die-hard fan, prove it in an orange chicken chopsticks challenge or trivia game.

No word on details for the chopsticks game, but we’re hoping it somehow involves eating as much orange chicken as you can, with chopsticks, in a span of five minutes.

The truck will also host an orange chicken chef challenge from 5 to 6 p.m. Four to five yet-to-be-announced chefs will make their own dishes incorporating the orange chicken. And a group of media and judges will crown the orange chicken champion.

943–951 N. Broadway, Los Angeles, www.chinatownsummernights.com.
