Follow Twitter to dinner

While the taco truck has been around for decades, it was not until late 2008 that an enterprising L.A. chef added two twists to the art of bringing mobile food to the masses: Twitter (to summon fans to the truck’s real-time location) and culinary novelty (in this case, quesadillas with kimchi). Roy Choi and his Kogi truck sparked a fanatical following, and a slew of other gourmet food trucks have been popping up every month around the West, with super-appealing fare: artisanal hot dogs made from grass-fed beef, an entire menu devoted to riffs on grilled cheese, farm-fresh pub food, quirky ice cream sandwiches (candied bacon flavor!), and ultra-fresh sushi, just to name a few. And now we live in a world where a common answer to the question, “What’s for dinner?” is “Check Twitter.”
