The Kennedy’s are back in the news! Time for a little taste of Hyannis Port (it was either that this week or my recommendation for Austrian food in LA and I’m still in search of a good place for Schnitzel). So I headed over to the Lobsta Truck and waited in line for over a half hour. Â Was it worth it? Â Hell yeah! It’s Wicked Awesome!
The concept is simple: Â The Lobsta Truck serves succulent Lobster Rolls and Crab Rolls with your choice of butter or seasoned mayo on traditional split top buns. Â The lobster and crab are flown in from New England a few times a week, as are the split top buns, so everything tastes really fresh. Â The also serve Clam Chowder, which was good not great, fresh squeezed lemonade, Maine Root sodas, packaged Cape Cod Potato Chips and Whoopie Pies. Â This is one of the more expensive food trucks in town. Â The Lobster Rolls are $12 each and the Crab Rolls are $11 each and they are not huge, so you are probably going to want at least two. Â But they are mighty tasty and, as Ahnold says, I’ll be back!
The best way to find The Lobsta Truck is the weekly schedule posted on their website.

I love the simple menu
This food truck was a real find! Â Lake Street Creamery is a Gourmet Ice Cream Truck with really delicious and unusual flavors. Â The regular menu includes such flavors as “Pancake Breakfast” (made with flapjacks, maple syrup, bits of real bacon and a sprinkling of fresh-ground Peaberry coffee; “not for vegetarians or the excitable”); “Donut” (tastes just like a cake donut), “Aztec Sacrifice” (spicy chocolate made with chiles and cayenne pepper), “Black Jack” (“It’s Black Licorice. Â Deal with it.”) Â and “Holiday Chocolate” (made with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger).
The Ice Cream is served in tasty waffle bowls (“in a futile attempt to save the planet”) and they serve you really generous scoops as well as very generous tastes of any flavor you want to try. Â I tried them all! Â They also make special Ice Cream Floats such as “Jelly Donut” (Donut Ice Cream with Black Cherry Soda) and “Coffee and a Donut” (Donut Ice Cream and Iced Coffee). Â When I visited the truck recently, they had a special flavor called “The Don Draper.” Its ingredients include vanilla, caramel, bourbon and smoke.Â Â It was great to be able toÂ enjoyÂ my favorite tv show about mid-century ad execsÂ in the form of a frozen dessert!Â Â How to find the Lake Street Creamery Truck: Â they post a calendar on their website www.lakestreetcreamery.com.
UPDATE: THE LAKE STREET CREAMERY TRUCK IS SADLY NO MORE. I WILL HAVE TO MAKE MY OWN DON DRAPER ICE CREAM AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET “SMOKE” FLAVORING.
Sorry, Nom Nom Truck. I have a new food truck obsession. Â The Ludotruck, the newest venture of local celebrity chef Ludo Lafebvre (of Ludo Bites and Top Chef Masters fame), serves fried chicken and biscuits like you’ve never tasted before! Â What to order: Â you can get three different kinds of chicken (and you can get a combo that comes with all three), but my favorite is the Provencal Pepitte, which are juicy boneless chicken balls infused with rosemary and herbs de provence and prepared using a special three days process. Â Also excellent are the Honey Lavander Biscuits and the Ludo Slaw. Â How to find it: Â the easiest way is the schedule posted on the Ludotruck Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ludotruck.
