“It’s a daily culinary performance that plays out across Los Angeles: Top food truck chefs whipping up gourmet meals in spaces no bigger than a restaurant’s stockroom or walk-in freezer.
“But even as the trucks have become a popular staple of the local food scene, with Twitter followers and long queues, they have been lagging behind restaurants and even sidewalk food carts in one important category — health safety, a Los Angeles Times data analysis found.
“About 27% of food trucks earned lower than A grades over the last two years, according to a Times review of Los Angeles County Department of Public Health data. By comparison, slightly less than 5% of bricks-and-mortar restaurants and about 18% of food carts fell below that mark.”
There is one such truck which travels around Kapiti and comes into Waikanae — we hope that it receives the same scrutiny as bricks-and-mortar premises.
