Today: Downtown Food Truck Lot Opens
The Santa Monica Food Truck lot is history for now, but thanks to a downtown property owner, a food truck association is testing out the neighborhood for three days this week. Beginning today to 4 p.m., five trucks are serving food in the Arts District at Alameda and Traction.
"It looks pretty good," said Matt Geller, one of the SCMFVA organizers as he monitored the lot just before noon. "People are streaming in pretty well."
Today's line-up includes The Dosa Truck, Barbie's Q, Fishlips Sushi, Kabob n' Roll and Komodo. Geller says there is a good amount of street parking in the area. The lot will continue operations on Friday and Saturday with a maximum of five trucks at any given time.
