If you have a hankering for some food truck fare, 16 mobile food vendors will be set up on Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Cesar Chavez Park. Vendors include: Heavenly Dog, Wicked 'Wich, OMG Burger, The Pizza Company, El Matador Mobile Mex, Mama Kim on the Go and many more. For those who have a taste for fashion, the Gypsy Mobile Boutique will also be selling clothes and accessories for the ladies.
This roundup is organized by Foodmob, which is the events wing of the California Mobile Food Association. The Foodmob folks have been a key proponent of language drafted between local food trucks and restaurateurs that are expected to be heard at City Hall, and could result in ordinance changes related to food trucks.
Note there's been some very vocal pushback to some of these proposed changes, including compromises about where mobile food trucks can vend, from the Southern California Mobile Food Vendors Association. Two factions have basically formed: those who favor negotiating with brick and mortar owners, and others who believe constitutional rights trump city restrictions. Looks like this mobile food fight has a ways to go before resolving.
