Who let the bus out? World Fare Bustaurant rolls onto the scene
Los Angeles got its first “bustaurant” as World Fare, a restaurant on a vintage double-decker bus, rolled into Hollywood this week. Chef Andi Van Willigan, formerly an executive sous-chef for the Michael Mina group, is in the kitchen turning out the restaurant’s signature “bunnys” — hollowed-out bread filled with a variety of savory ingredients like braised short ribs with horseradish creme fraiche.
This certainly adds a needed twist to the oversaturated gourmet food truck scene, and the roof-deck dining sure does beat eating on a curb. It'll be interesting to see this rolling restaurant around town and even more interesting to see what kinds of innovation it inspires. Maybe fine dining in a Winnebago or a table for two on the back of a flatbed truck.
