Roy Choi, the godfather of food trucks, is taking 3 Worlds Cafe mobile. His new food truck will bring those delicious Dole whips, pastries and bobas are coming to you. 3 Worlds Cafe in South L.A. serves coffee, smoothes, pastries and fruity desserts, including Choi's own take on the beloved Dole Whip—a pineapple-flavored soft serve treat that originated in Disneyland.

The new truck is a partnership among Kogi BBQ, Choi and Dole Packaged Foods. The cafe, which opened in the summer of 2013, gives proceeds to Jefferson High School, and the truck works with students via a business education class at the school, Eater LA reports.

The truck hung out today in front of 3 Worlds Cafe, but soon it will be on the move, serving snacks like Dole whip floats, 'mango bomb' smoothies, nutty brownies and the 'Boba Fête'—where chopped pieces of fruit act as the boba. To find out where the truck is headed, follow 3 Worlds Cafe on Twitter.
