Southern California is the home to thousands of food trucks, and now more of them are offering kosher meals and snacks to Jewish and non-Jewish foodies.
Takosher is a Mexican–kosher food truck that dishes up generous servings that range from the latketaco to the brisket taco and even tofu fujitas. Takosher serves meat from Doheny Kosher Meats, a well-known kosher meat purveyor in LA, and the truck’s kosher certification comes from Rabbi Kelemer in Santa Monica. The truck’s food crew hopes to broaden the truck’s customer base by attracting non-kosher eaters too.
The Schnitzel Wagon has the official seal of approval from the Kehilla, a kosher approval consortium. The truck features a robust menu that includes crispy schnitzel sandwiches.
Mexikosher is another Mexican–kosher food truck rolling through the streets of Los Angeles. All dishes are made fresh using traditional cooking methods and unique ingredients. The menu lists nachos, salad, tacos, burritos and tacos. The truck’s chef is Katsuji Tanabe, who once worked at Shiloh’s, the kosher steakhouse.
We’re still looking for kugel on a mobile menu, but with the rapidly changing trends in food truck dining, it probably won’t be long.
