The prospect of getting a bite from the hottest food trucks in LA just got easier for lunch time diners close to LAX. Gateway To LA is sponsoring a food truck lot near Century Blvd every Tuesday from 11 AM until 3 PM.
The weekly event has been bringing popular trucks to a location just behind the Crowne Plaza hotel for almost two months now. Each week a different group of trucks shows up; past participants include Buttermilk Truck, India Jones, and Cool Haus among many others.
The event’s sponsor — The Gateway to L.A. Property-based Business Improvement District — has been working to make the Century Blvd corridor from LAX to the 405 “cleaner, safer and more vibrant”. I think they’d done a great job with the addition of the Tuesday food truck lot.
I compliment them for the steps they’ve taken to make it more than a “grab and go” experience. The lot is away from the major streets in the area; tables and chairs are available for diners that want to hang around; and hand-sanitizing wipes are nearby in case you need to scrub before eating. Nice touch. Oh, they also have some sort of live music going on be it a steel drummer or a keyboardist. Altogether, it makes the environment more like a festival instead of your average Tuesday lunch.
See ya there on Tuesday!
