During Wednesday and Friday nights, Chatsworth Street in Granada Hills has become host to more than 25 gourmet food trucks that set up shop and sell their culinary creations on the boulevard. Here are the top 5 food trucks that come out during the Granada Hills Food Truck Festival, in no particular order.
1. The Grilled Cheese Truck
The Grilled Cheese Truck offers a variety of their own unique creations, from cheesy mac and rib and brie, buffalo chicken and three-cheese melts to the dessert melts filled with marshmallows, Nutella, bananas and other sweet ingredients. If the menu items aren’t enough for you, you can make your own creation with a combination of any of their 15 or so savory ingredients.
2. Crepe’n Around
Crepe’n Around offers everything from the sweet to savory crêpes. Among their dessert crêpes are s’more-inspired ones with truckmade Callebaut chocolate sauce, marshmallows and graham crackers and Berries & Cream. Their savory crêpes, on the other hand, include chicken pesto, ham and Brie cheese and maple-braised pork. The business was named one of Los Angeles’ top 10 food trucks by Zagat.
3. Da Burger Boss
This 1920s gangster themed food truck offers a variety of burgers that will make you come back for more. All of their delicious burgers are put together with their very own “special sauce” and served with matchstick fries. Be sure to try the Patrolman, a big, juicy burger served with bacon, blue cheese and sweet cranberry-apple mashup held together with grilled glazed donuts.
4. The Churro Man
The Churro Man food truck makes its own fresh handmade twisted churros topped with the most delicious combination of cinnamon and sugar. Served warm and fresh and filled with sugary goodness, the food is a must for anyone with a sweet tooth. Not only are the churros tasty, but they’re also sold at an affordable price, even for broke college students. For a real treat, get five churros for a mere $4.
5. Sweet Arleen’s
Sweet Arleen’s offers many different cupcakes featured on “Cupcake Wars” on Food Network. As a three-time winner of the competition show, the truck bakes up flavors like chocolate marshmallow and salted caramel brownies. Sweet Arleen’s also serves traditional cupcake flavors like Southern-inspired red velvet topped with a delicious whipped cream cheese frosting and the classic vanilla cupcake.
