Just a few months ago it took one, maybe two hands to count all the food trucks in Los Angeles, which meant it was a helluva lot easier to keep tabs on who was serving where. With more trucks joining the ranks weekly, it helps to have info about the trucks and their stops centralized. There's a new website launching in LA called Roaming Hunger, which touts itself as "the hub for all things street food."

The site lists all of the food trucks, with an image, and provides their most recent Twitter update. By joining the community you can show your "love" of a truck by clicking on a heart icon, and see who is with you in the feeling. The list can also be sorted by the most popular ones, the sweet, the savory, or the vegetarian. Roaming Hunger has unique directories for other major US cities' food trucks, like Seattle, Portland, New York, DC, and the site's home city of San Francisco. For fun, you can also look at all the trucks of all the cities in one directory, which, when we tried it just now, made us realize the good people of San Diego get to keep their eyes out for the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.

Check out LAist's ever-growing list of LA Food Trucks, which includes links to their Twitter accounts and our coverage of the trucks we've tracked down.
