L.A...shopping...food trucks...

crossed some things off of my...
"things to do whilst in california list"...
bargain shopping at santee alley which is 
located in the fashion district of los angeles...
outlet shopping at the citadel factory outlet...
and one of most important thing i wanted to cross off my list was to 
find and eat from the "nom nom food truck!".
i have been totally obsessed with them ever since i 
watched "the great food truck race" on the food network channel last year.

thanks to jozen from "lola's girl" she told me that their daily truck schedule
was on their website and to follow their tweets.
today's tweet:

 Nom Nom Truck 


the day was getting late and i didn't think we'd make it since we
really didn't know where the location was 
but we happened to take the back streets back to the hotel to avoid
the LA traffic on the freeway and
as we were driving along "the lobster truck" happened to catch
miss bling's eye!  
sure enough i double checked the tweet...
and yes!  
that's where they were...
i ordered a bahn mi...
it was soooo good...
the family told me to buy another one!
miss bubbles and the hubby stood in line for ice cream
at the coolhaus ice cream truck...
they ordered an ice cream sandwich...
chocolate cookies with thin mint ice cream.
and my guy ordered
red velvet chocolate chip pancakes from the buttermilk truck...
everything we ordered was yummylicious!!!!
and i was just thrilled to pieces that the family and i got to experience
the food truck craze that's
all the rage down in southern california!
it was a great way to end a fantabulous day...
and from this nomster...
"may the Nom be with you!"....
