Last Friday, food blogs announced the closing of two food trucks, Asian Soul Food and Willoughby Road. Both relatively new trucks to L.A.'s growing fleet of mobile eateries, it wasn't a surprise. While Asian Soul Kitchen wrote a goodbye letter on their website, the Southern food-based Willoughby was more elusive: "willoughby will not be at wilshire but will be at the artwalk downtown tonite come down to willoughbys final night." But what that really meant was "last night" before a hiatus. "We are coming back," they twittered in response to the buzz on Twitter. "Just doing some upgrades to the truck." At the end of 2009, a panel of food experts predicted that 2010 will be the year of the Food Truck deathwatch. So far, one down, 89 more to go?
