It made lots of sense in 2010 when French chef Ludo Lefebvre launched a mobile kitchen with no permanent location other than the road. After all, this beloved chef with 13 years of training at three-Michelin-starred restaurants has made his reputation with LudoBites, a pop-up restaurant of sorts, which has still managed to garner recurring accolades from the likes of none other than Jonathan Gold (now with the Los Angeles Times) who named dishes prepared by Lefebvre as a Top 10 Dish of the year from 2007 through 2010 for LA Weekly.


The LudoTruck serves Lefebvre’s famous fried chicken. Buttermilk chicken, honey garlic-glazed wings, crispy breast strips, and the crispy chicken sandwich can be dressed with honey mustard, béarnaise, spicy mayo, and ranch dressing (ranch dressing made by a French chef, oh yeah, get you some of that), and eaten with slaw, fries, or a honey lavender biscuit. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012
