During the years I lived in L.A., I lived in the part of the city that was abundant with food trucks. Although those particular food trucks mainly served Mexican food, I still enjoyed getting food from them considering how relatively fast, cheap and delicious they truly were. When I moved to Orange County nearly five-and-a-half years ago, I was disappointed with the lack of presence of food trucks in the city of Placentia.
I was finally able to try them out again just recently. This time, it was a uniquely different experience.
While some dismiss the concept of food trucks for many different reasons, they have become more popular than ever before! With the popularity of Twitter, food trucks have established a huge presence on this micro-blogging social media website.
During the Social Media Day event on Wednesday, June 30 at the Orange County Register building in Santa Ana, seven food trucks were parked outside the building for attendees to patronize during the event. Those tweeting food trucks often update followers about where they can find the trucks and whatever else they have cooking up for their loyal followers.
This was my first time ever trying those particular types of food trucks and I must say they were all fantastic! Of the seven trucks that were there, I managed to try four of them (in the order I tried them) — Calbi Truck (@CalbiBBQ), Piaggio (@piaggioonwheels), Oh For Sweets Sake (@Ohforsweetssake) and Longboards Ice Cream (@longboards). The food from the four trucks were unlike anything I have ever tried before.
