nom nom truck
the foodie truck revolution has hit los angeles county hard. starting with the legendary kogi korean taco truck, things have progressed to all sorts of wonderful meals on wheels. one recent addition is the fabulous vietnamese fusion creations of the nom nom truck. through a fellow blogger i discovered that they would be making their first visit to pasadena this past weekend. i quickly decided i had to check it out in person.
now i don't admit to know very much about vietnamese cuisine, but the lemongrass chicken taco and grilled pork banh mi sandwich i tried were fantastic! my meal was an explosion of savory meats, pickled vegetables, cilantro, and peppers, layered with tasty sauces and chewy/crusty breads. it was sweet, spicy, sour, savory, and all things a meal on the go should be. you can bet i'll be returning to the nom nom truck in the future.
