Flying Pig Truck

More food truck! The Flying Pig truck sounds interesting as the people behind it are Le Cordon Bleu-trained and the food they sell is what they called “Asian & Pacific rim flavors with French technique”. A quick look at the menu shows they sell Gua bao and creative fusion tacos. Gua Bao, or known as “Taiwanese burger”, is a traditional Taiwanese snack that has became quite popular in New York according to Freda who visited there 2 months ago. Will Flying Pig bring this trend to LA?

Braised pork belly bun with red onion escabeche, sesame cucumber. $3 This is their star item. They call it bun but it’s actually gua bao. It’s very delicious! The braised pork belly is very tender and flavorful. It’s a good renedition of the traditional Taiwanese gua boa.

Tamarind duck tacos with toasted almond, pickled beet salad $2.50
Other than Gua bao they have a very interesting fusion taco menu. I picked the duck one as it sound good. I was quite surprised at how gourmet it taste! The shredded duck was tasty and there’re so many different flavors: mild sweetness from the beets and nice touch of acidity from the mandarin orange.

I can’t wait to try other stuffs on the menu. Very good food and they definitely stand apart from many other food trucks out there. Highly recommended to track it down!
