Food truck culture has been slow to catch on in Orange County, but now they've got their first casualty. The Brooklyn Boy's Deli Truck made its last stop on Saturday, says the OC Register. Owner Marc Gabriel is selling the truck and taking a chef job in his hometown of Temecula. Word had it that the Deli truck was too pricey for "street food," while others complained they were lousy at letting people know via Twitter where they'd be. We might concur with the latter, since we didn't even know the Brooklyn Boy was serving up the nosh until recently. Maybe SoCal eaters just aren't into pastrami on rye on four wheels; one of the L.A. based trucks to put on the brakes for good was fellow deli-ite Fresser's.
