Like sunny skies and Ugg boots, the current trend of gourmet food trucks remains in perpetual motion here in Los Angeles. Just a couple of weeks ago the Grilled Cheese Truck got people salivating with their cheesy "Pre-Melt" event held at the Farmer's Kitchen adjoining the Hollywood Farmers' Market in preparation for their roll out, and this week has seen the official on-four-wheels debut of both Downtown Dog (hot dogs) and the Flying Pig Truck ("Asian Fusion with French Technique").

On the horizon remain more mobile offerings; The Buttermilk Truck is aiming to start serving up breakfast foods on November 11th, while The Sweets Truck is a bit more evasive, having said recently on Twitter: "Don't want 2 give exact date, but we'll be rolling soon."

Meanwhile, other trucks are working on adjusting service based on demand and the changing season. While the trend's acknowledged fore-father, KogiBBQ, has added their "Naranja" truck for service in The OC, other trucks, like Border Grill (LAist Interview), may soon be offering up menu items to keep patrons warm on chilly days and nights and that have the flavors of the fall season.
