For past week or so, the people behind the Buttermilk Truck have been sneaking around town, previewing its food to whoever came upon it. Although the truck officially debuts Wednesday evening with its late-night menu (think fried chicken and waffles and the Buttermilk Brick--hash browns, eggs over easy, buttermilk biscuit and a housemade chorizo gravy), the truck arrived for a not-so-secret sneak peek of its morning menu at yesterday's Silver Lake Art Craw event at Barnsdall Art Park.

The line was long and slow, but worth it. How could you go wrong with Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancake Bites ($5)? Or the most raved about Hawaiian Bread Cinnamon French Toast Sticks ($2.50 or $4).

Items that were so popular, the truck ran out of, included the Housemade Cake Donuts ($2.50, $4) and the Buttermilk Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches ($3.50), which a choice of applewood smoked bacon, chicken apple sausage or tocino with cheese and fried egg on a buttermilk biscuit. Add fifty-cents for rosemary garlic hash browns. And lastly, a steady favorite was the Hawaiin Bread Breakfast Sliders ($5), a mix of Portuguese sausage with sauteed onions and shoyu scrambled eggs.
