MEET LAS TROCAS
We all started out with one truck, one hope and one aspiration on a rainy Thanksgiving weekend in 2008. Chased out by club owners and cops, the support and small army of fans helped us grow from one truck to two, from two trucks to three, from three trucks to five – but then we scaled it back down again to four to keep our service, quality and connection to our fans at a nice and even keel. What most people know is that each truck has been christened with a name. What most people don’t know is that each name has been christened with a soul and a name and is stationed at certain corners of L.A. and Orange County — though Rosita, our newest addition, likes to fly under the radar and show up at our most private events.
Our original #69 truck, the one that carries the most history and battle scars soldiers on to serve lunch and dinner to the greater San Fernando area, which includes but is not limited to: Sherman Oaks, Northridge, Century City, Granada Hills, New Hall, West LA, Sawtelle, Woodland Hills and sometimes Rowland Heights.
The 2nd soldier to join the family, Verde’s been faithfully serving up the San Gabriel Valley and then some: Universal, USC, Eagle Rock, LACC, Diamond Bar, Signal Hill, City of Industry, Burbank, Downtown L.A., Korea Town, Long Beach, Carson, Venice, Whittier and El Monte.
Thanks to the efforts of Big E and the support of the good people of Orange County, we were able to add Naranja to our Kogi unit and send him out to serve Irvine, Cypress, Orange, Anaheim, Buena Park and Costa Mesa.
Looking to shindig it up for an upcoming special occasion? Rosita’s the one to call on. From our biggest events at the Coachella Valley Festival and Swedish House Mafia to the most humble of office parties, sweetest of weddings and swankiest of bat mitzvahs, she can’t get enough of the festivities. Let us put it this way – if Rosita had a favorite color, it would be piñata.
