Roy Choi is no stranger to food trucks—the chef practically shaped L.A.'s mobile food scene into what it is today—but he's been concentrating on brick-and-mortar restaurants lately, even turning his beloved Kogi truck into a grounded taqueria in Palms. So we're stoked about the latest news: LocoL, Choi's super-affordable fast food joint in Watts, is hitting the streets this week with a LocoL truck.
As of right now, the truck is open for lunch on Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30am-2pm. Most of LocoL's hits are on the truck menu: the LocoL cheeseburger, chicken sausage, BBQ turkey and veggie cheeseburger are all $5, while the bowls—messy beef chili bowl, messy turkey chili bowl, and the crushed tofu and veggie stew—are all $7. If you're craving more of a snack, the foldies (carnitas, machaca, bean-n-cheese and turkey) are $3 each; there will also be rotating specials like burritos and aguas frescas.
While the truck's location will most likely change each week, you can check out the updated schedule on its website. As for this week, lunch-goers can find the LocoL truck at these lucky spots:
Tuesday: 474 S Raymond Ave, Pasadena
Wednesday: 9909 Jefferson Blvd, Culver City
Thursday: 2500 Broadway, Santa Monica
