UCLA and USC on Thursday


UCLA vs. USC...which school will win Nom Nom Truck's heart?

We’ll be heading out to UCLA this Thursday for lunch, then on over to USC for a night shift (hope we can find good parking…anyone want to save us a spot?).  I wonder which spot we’ll get more people to show up?  It may not be the Rose Bowl, but GAME ON!  ;P

11:00AM-2:00PM: at UCLA on Gayley and Strathmore Blvd. in Westwood
9:30PM-12:30AM: USC Frat Row (if we can find parking…if not, somewhere nearby)

Nom Nom <3 Cool Haus! German TV Joins the Love-fest!


We headed out to Encino for the first time this Tuesday for lunch, and we had Cool Haus join us for a great afternoon up in the Valley!  Not only did Cool Haus hook it up with every type of ice-cream sandwich in existence for all the Nom Nom truckers, they also made special “Cool Haus loves Nom Nom” edible wrappers!!!  Wow…if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.  =P  Check out the pics below to see the awesome custom edible wrapper they made!

In addition to having Cool Haus with us yesterday afternoon, we also had a correspondent from N24 German national television come out to interview both Cool Haus and Nom Nom Truck!  They were putting together a piece about LA gourmet food trucks, and drove all the way out to meet us on location!  Apparently N24 is comparable to CNN here in the US, so that’s pretty freakin’ awesome!  We took some pics of Misa doing the interview.  We’ll be sure to post the video link up when the story airs.  Should be fun!  =D


New Sched up for Nov 2nd Week!

We’re so excited about this week: co-shift with CoolHaus ice cream (mmmm cinnamon ice creeeeam!), our first lunch shift in Sherman Oaks, and stoppin’ by to USC frat row on Thursday. It’s gonna be another busy week! :D

Nightmare on Nom Nom Street

We had an absolute blast running around LA for Halloween weekend.  Zombiethon and the 6th Street Halloween Block Party was soooo much fun and we loved everyone that came up dressed in their cute/scary/weird costumes! Tacos all around!

Sadly, we got the boot from the popos at about 1am, so the Nominator had to turn into a pumpkin. :(  Oh wellz…we are still very much ready to hit the streets with all the tasty banh mi (I welcome all costumes for amusement).

Special thanks to Jill, Alex and Dan for inviting us out!!


French Girl (Jenn) and Hippie (Misa) luv tasty baguettes (Hi Santa!)
