Lomo Arigato.... more info

Lomo Arigato.... more info, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

In my rush ? to post more about the LA food trucks I forgot to
mention what an interesting food truck this one is !

Lomo Arigato, is a Japanese-Peruvian food truck. First Korean Taco
now this. What is the world coming too !

And how many languages can I say YUM in.

The back story of how Chef Eric Nakata got this idea and how it came
to be is really interesting.
He does have a web site, I don't know how to link yet, but it is easy
to find
The fourth result, the Daily Dish one has a nice write-up on him.

Lomo Saltado is a Peruvian dish of strips of sirloin marinated in
many spices one of them soy sauce,
then stir-fried and served over rice and homemade fries.

I think ? the name is a play on the "more please" statement. So cute !

We are very lucky to have a Peruvian restaurant in Tucson just down
the street from my home.
I always think I live out in the wild foothills of the Tucson Valley
( I do ) but then I realize
Wow ! there are some fabulous restaurants right in my neighborhood.
That I get to visit when not dodging all the wild animals !

yummy. . . parsnip

  1. There has to be a PhD in these food trucks, they're so pioneering in spirit like little mini Americas.
