Los Angeles' fascination with street food, from the real taco trucks to the recent gourmet Twittering food trucks (new word, Twiteatery?), will all be found in one spot come February 13th when the Los Angeles Street Food Fest makes its debut at LA Center Studios.

The organizing force behind the festival, Sauce LA's Shawna Dawson, a former Yelp Community Manager, and Sonja Rasula of UniqueLA, have finally announced the scrumptious line-up of food and craft vendors and we're already salivating over it.

Regularly talked about mobile vendors like Coolhaus, The Grilled Cheese Truck and Buttermilk Truck will be there, but others--more unheard of in the Twitter popularity contest, yet equally as good tasting--include Antojitos Abuelita of North Hollywood, Antojitos Carmen of Boyle Heights and Sabor de Bahia of Palms. Farmers market popsicle maker, Emily Zaiden of the popshop, and the Monsieur Egg Food Cart will also be there.

"We still have a couple of surprises up our sleeves," hints Dawson about the growing line-up. For now, see the who's booked so far below.
