Just what do all those food trucks mean for Los Angeles culture?
Evan Kleiman, restaurateur and host of KCRW's "Good Food," has organized a panel discussion on May 1 at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica about just that topic. She will be joined by Gustavo Arellano of the O.C. Weekly, and two guests via Skype: Lelsley Tellez from Mexico City and Robyn Eckhardt from Kuala Lumpur.
No conversation about street food would be worth much without some food, of course. On hand will be several food trucks, including Mariscos Jalisco, Let's Be Frank, India Jones, Piaggio Gourmet and Nom Nom.
Tickets are on sale at KCRW.
