Crowds line up at Chef Ludo Lefebvre's food truck at the LA Street Food Fest

Food trucks are heavily restricted in Chicago, which is surprising considering places like LA and my hometown of Minneapolis have food trucks. Here you can have a food truck, but you can’t cook or do any food prep on board. The food has to be prepared and packaged in a licensed kitchen and then brought on the truck.

I’ve grown to love food trucks after going to a great taco truck in New Orleans with my friend Jamie, where I had the best chicken in red sauce taco ever.
