Yellow Taco Truck

For those who crave authentic Mexican tacos and burritos, the Yellow Taco Truck is available in Rowland Heights every day of the week except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Affordable and tasty, the truck serves tacos, tortas, quesadillas, burritos and mulitas. The truck has anything you could find in a sit down Mexican restaurant, including a variety of Mexican sodas like Sangria and Jarritos, and a wide selection of meat-- from the classic carne asada to beef tongue. While the wait can take a while, the authentic flavor of the food is worth a try if you’re in the area. The truck also caters for special events, providing cuisine for those craving tacos made like those in the streets of Mexico.

Dos Chinos

With its home base in Santa Ana, the Dos Chinos truck caters its Latin Asian fusion food around the Southern California area. The truck offers a different variety of meats with Asian-style jasmine rice and lettuce served in an unconventional way. Vietnamese chicken and shrimp are placed in rice bowls and tacos, along with a side of fries covered in pork and carne asada. When visiting the truck while it was catering at Walnut City Hall, I tried the Santana Chicken tacos, and enjoyed the Vietnamese style meat paired with corn flour tortillas. While a bit far to visit, the Dos Chinos truck is great for catering Latin Asian food to events, perfectly incorporating Vietnamese style with tacos and fries.

Slummin’ Gourmet

While those with more refined tastes may shy away from the quick and casual style of gourmet that food trucks offer, the Slummin’ Gourmet provides high-class food on the go. Soon to make a permanent home in Pomona, the truck currently caters to events and drives around the Diamond Bar area. Offering sliders, sandwiches and fries, Slummin’ Gourmet is advertised as “fancy without the schmancy.” Upscale foods, such as kobe and buttered brioche buns, are on the menu for an affordable price. The buttery and juicy American Kobe sliders, which cost $9.95, are a personal favorite as well as the crispy and flavorful garlic parmesan fries for $5.95. With high quality food on the go, hiring the Slummin’ Gourmet truck is an opportunity to have delicious food at any event.

Kogi Taco Truck

Bringing the flavors of Korean cuisine in Mexican style tacos, quesadillas and burritos, the Kogi BBQ Taco Truck is known for its portable delicious food. While the truck mainly resides in the downtown Los Angeles area, it makes its home in Diamond Bar from 6-9 pm on Wednesday evenings. Covered with stickers, the truck is easy to spot next to the 7-11 on Diamond Bar Boulevard. With a short wait and friendly service, the fusion truck serves tacos and burritos for $2 and $7 respectively, as well as fan favorites such as the Kogi Dog for $7. Among all the unique flavors offered, the Blackjack Quesadilla keeps me returning time after time. For $8, the quesadilla comes stuffed with caramelized onions, spicy pork and cheese, and drenched with flavorful citrus-garlic sauce. Easy to access, especially after a long day, every Wednesday night, the Kogi Truck cannot be missed for anyone looking for a quick tasty meal to grab on the way home.
