Follow food trucks on our Twitter list; Asian Soul Kitchen rolling out Dec. 1

Various food trucks park outside the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA for the Dwell on Design conference held in June 2009 Using Twitter's new list function, I managed to harness one tiny atom of the power of social networking by creating a list of Los Angeles food trucks.

At the top (OK, technically, the bottom) is the newest of the nouveau food trucks, Asian Soul Kitchen. The brainchild of husband-and-wife team Richard Wright and Akiko Konami, it fuses American soul food and Asian food. The duo previously ran the Butta’Cup Lounge, a similarly themed restaurant in the Fort Greene neighborhood of  Brooklyn, before picking up stakes and moving to L.A. in 2008. Examples of their fusion cuisine include teriyaki beef sliders, salmon croquettes and their signature lollipop chicken (fried chicken with an optional tamarind glaze). Barring any delays, the truck should officially roll out on Dec. 1, but check their Twitter feed for test runs after the truck gets wrapped in mid-November.

Asian Soul Kitchen is part of the expanding fleet of Road Stoves trucks, which is also rolling out the Little Spoon dessert truck in the near future. More details to come.
