The presence of specialty lunch trucks throughout Los Angeles is palpable. And they’re no longer serving simple tacos and burgers. The new fleet of “meals-on-wheels” are serving gourmet grub with increasing popularity through the clever use of social media tools, like Twitter and Facebook. A recent new entry into this culinary landscape is the Hungry Nomad.
So what, you ask? Well, it’s the first lunch truck to serve in LA that specializes in Armenian and Lebanese cuisine. What makes this news whet our appetite even more is that this venture is from Sasoun Bakery, the pureveyors of our favorite lahmajune (Armenian pizza) in Little Armenia.
Some of the tasty items on their truck menu include lahmajune, cheese and beef beorek, fattoush and Armenian potato salad, and hummus.
More about Hungry Nomad
Hungry Nomad is a mobile spin off of Sasoun Bakery, a family owned and operated Armenian/Lebanese bakery with 8 locations – six in the LA area and two in Lebanon. We have taken our most popular family recipes and given them an edgy and innovative twist for the road. Many ask, why Hungry Nomad? Our truck is a traveling nomad without a permanent home, migrating from one location to another with a primary focus of feeding the people. Our truck is also a representation of us and our people. Hundreds of thousands of Armenians have left their homeland and spread throughout the world, picking up hints from each country they settled in. Our original cuisine is the product of a mix of cultures and flavors that tells the story of our people.
