Last week another food truck hit the streets of Los Angeles, and LAist Featured Photos pool contributor nomsnotbombs had a taste. Touting burgers with a conscience, The Patty Wagon is poised to give other burger trucks--maybe burgers in general?--a run for their money, particularly with their focus on locally-sourced ingredients and patties made with grass-fed beef. Noms Not Bombs the blogger explains the concept:

If you're not the Food Inc.-watching, The Omnivore's Dilemma-reading type, feeding cows grass (rather than corn, grain or other animals) is better for them, you and the environment. In short, if every truck needs a "gimmick," Patty Wagon's is sustainability and great taste.

The "great taste" part was found in the two slider-sized mini-burgers (yup, they're keeping 'em mini) she tried, the "Keep Your Sunny Side Up ($3.00, L- slider served on ciabatta bread with gremolata) and I Get a Kick Out of You ($3.25, R- roasted jalapenos, pancetta and provolone cheese)." Ready to drool, carnivores? Check this response: "My favorite bites of the slider were where the oil from the gremolata and the meat had soaked through to the ciabatta." The Patty Wagon also has homemade dill pickles, and desserts. Keep your eye out for them!
