LOS ANGELES ? For some foodies, Tweets lead to great eats.
Twitter recently became the communique of choice for the almost
cultishly popular Kogi BBQ trucks, roving Korean-style taco
vendors in Los Angeles that use the 140-character, cell
phone-friendly missives to alert customers to their whereabouts
and menu items.
And the trend is spreading to other wheel meals as more food
trucks ? a fast-growing food
Portland Twitter users, such as PDXfoodcarts, track the arrival
of new trucks, which have exploded from just a few in 2006 to
more than 170 this year, representing 24 national cuisines.
"OK, Poompui, a new Thai cart on 8th and Couch is PHENOMENAL,"
read a recent Tweet by PDXfoodcarts. "Like Thai food in Thailand.
GO, JUST GO."
