It was a street food enthusiast's ideal showdown on Saturday, as the 1st Annual L.A. Vendy Awards brought together six vendors who specialize in good eats for customers on their two feet. With a crowd of about 250 attendees who purchased admission for $45-60 (variables due to pre-sale discounts and at-the-door purchase) and five local food experts serving as judges, the event was a rousing success, and honored the many variations of street food Angelenos continue to embrace.
