Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Not every mall can be like Century City's Westfield, overflowing with food options, from ramen to tacos and bibimbap. The Beverly Center is one of those shopping centers that has a paltry offering of eateries like Wetzel's Pretzels and CPK—but it looks like they've been holding out on us shoppers. They have food trucks that swing by every day, but they're hidden away in their parking lot.

A source told Racked LA that three food trucks show up every day at lunchtime at the parking lot next to the Macy's Men's store entrance. However, the head honchos at the Beverly Center apparently want to keep these details hush-hush so employees can enjoy the trucks. They don't advertise the trucks, though really anyone can walk up and order food there.

However, Book That Truck, a company that connects food truck vendors to space providers, lists the Beverly Center's food truck schedule online. This week alone, the Lobos Truck, Komodo, and the Mandoline Grill are just some of the purveyors apparently rolling up to the mall's parking lot. The website says that the food trucks operate Mondays through Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.

Keep that in mind the next time you go on a shopping spree at the Beverly Center.
