In 2010, the Vendy Awards brought their competitive street food road show to Los Angeles. There was a break last year, but the games are back on for 2012. The list for this year's Vendy Awards finalists were announced today, representing a mix of both traditional and new-wave specialty trucks. Here's who made the cut: El Tacos Gallito (Mexican), India Jones Chow Truck (Indian street food and curries), Karina's Food (Mexican), Buttermilk Truck (American breakfast food), Martha's Tamales Organicos (Mexican), the Lime Truck (California cuisine), El Palomo Hot Dogs (Mexican-style hot dogs).

Tickets for the event, which takes place on June 24 at Pan Pacific Park, are $40. Will you attend? Did any of your favorite street side purveyors get slighted in the election process?
