Last Night's Street Feast Meant Long Waits on Two Feet

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

We admit to being part of the hype machine about last night's Street Feast at Glendale's Americana shopping complex, which featured almost a dozen of the city's dozens (and growing number) of food trucks all in one place.

Some attendees opted to brave 90-minute (possibly even 2-hour) waits for fare from Buttermilk Truck and the Grilled Cheese Truck (the two most popular at last night's event, we hear) the evening, and somewhat shorter lines from trucks like Mandoline Grill, The Dim Sum Truck, Komodo, Coolhaus, Frysmith, Willoughby Road, and the Dosa Truck.

Just like the LA Street Food Fest proved, the trucks remain a huge draw, but might not be adept at serving huge crowds all at once. A writeup today in Brand X remarks:

The whole scene was a bit odd, considering road stoves were originally designed to be quick, cheap eats for the working class; yet there they were, lined up in front of Cole Hahn peddling $7 orders of French fries, serving up zeitgeist with a spork.
