Nina’s Food (Boyle Heights) takes the LA Vendy Award 2010

Posted by Cyrus Farivar on May 18, 2010

As the Los Angeles Times put it: “Old school edges out new at food vendor contest” — that would be the very first LA Vendy Awards, which took place this past Sunday at MacArthur Park.

I’m really glad to see old school trucks and street vendors getting some play over the newer flashier variety. I love the Twittering gourmet trucks, but dudes, there’s been a whole phalanx of trucks running around the City of Angels long before Twitter.

I haven’t yet had the pleasure of sampling Nina’s quesadillas, but I’ll make sure to make a special trip next time I’m in SoCal. Congrats, Nina!
