Food Truck Farewell: Fresser's Hanging Up the Pastrami

Fresser's Pastrami (Elise Thompson/LAist)
We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Launched in December of last year, Fresser's is the latest food truck to announce they will be calling it quits as of this weekend. Today they posted on their site:

After much thinking, conversation, and soul searching we have decided that the time has come to close our doors. We enjoyed our time on the Fresser’s truck serving you our delicious pastrami. We’ve met a lot of wonderful people and made new friends along our journey, and we will miss you all. Thank you all for your support!

It's too bad this truck never caught on as well as some of the others; we really enjoyed their tender pot roast and pastrami sandwiches at the Street Food Fest in February. You'll have your last chance to give them a taste on Saturday night from 5-8 at an event at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.
