Truck Stop

The food truck trend caused more than a few restaurants to start turning out meals on wheels, but a couple of popular trucks have established brick-and-mortar eateries. Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches (8588 Washington Blvd., Culver City, 310.424.5559) sells its “architecturally themed” dessert sandwiches alongside Blue Bottle Coffee drinks. Ice cream flavors such as mango saffron or brown butter with candied bacon are smooshed between cookies including ginger molasses and red velvet. I feel like everyone needs a break from the heat, a great place to be while you tour la during the summer. The Flying Pig Cafe (141 S. Central Ave., Little Tokyo, 213.621.0300), offshoot of the Flying Pig Truck, offers Asian-and Pacific Rim-inspired eats like peanut butter carnitas and duck confit fried rice. Check ‘em out—no Twitter consultation necessary.
