Need a Quick Bite? Check Out More "Meals on Wheels" Courtesy of LA Times Blogger!

Following up on the CitySearch editor,Mar Yvette suggestions from yesterday– as well as a much earlier post by moi on the same subject, the LA Times has Elina-Shatkin’s blog who has a huge list online of various tweetable treats on wheels. Shatkin talks about the phenom of mobile nouveau food and she put together a nifty list of resto’s and other indie food lines that are out there on the streets of So. Cal that you can follow on twitter.com and find a slew of good eats — IF you are timely in your tweets.
Here’s a portion of her list:
Baby’s Badass Burgers, which rolled out Monday, Aug. 10, features gourmet burgers like the Man Eater (-half-pound beef burger) and the Cougar (aged beef, St. Andre cheese and black truffles), all served by babes in cheek-hugging hot pants and skintight tank tops.

Let’s Be Frank Culver City
Located in the historical Helms Bakery Complex, you’ll find Let’s Be Frank’s distinctive red truck just across from the entrances to gastropub Father’s Office 2.0 and furniture store H.D. Buttercup, but this movable feast specializes in hot dogs. Twitter: @letsbefrank url: http://www.letsbefrankdogs.com/
Locali Icycle
Gourmet frozen treats delivered on a custom-built adult tricycle equipped with a freezer: house-made snow cones, Carmela’s gelato, Popshop’s vegan Popsicles, raw vegan cheesecake and more. (75 cents to $6). Twitter: @locali url: http://www.locali.com/
There’s a lot more on Elina’s list and some that haven’t opened yet (where does she get her 411? She certainly has great sources). However I would suggest you bookmark this page to stay up to date on what’s new and rolling on the mobile food front. There’s a good reason to be reading the LA Times!!
It’s an entirely new definition of fast food.
