    The history section highlighted LA's history of cultural appropriation (especially from Mexican immigrants!) even in our informal food sector. The middle section describes the late-night taco truck hot spots (go Leo's Tacos!) The back half of the book is mostly the high-end food trucks around LA and where they might be parked to be found on any given night.

    I enjoyed reading this book about non-traditional spots to eat in L.A. I thought it was more of a guide than a history but it was still very thorough. Made me want to stop and have a taco mid book.
