Food Trucks coming to Signal Hill!

Tuesday night, it was announced via Twitter (thanks to @thetruckchaser) that Signal Hill will soon be seeing a weekly gathering of a rotating lineup of gourmet food trucks. The Long Beach area’s “independent donut hole” is the latest town to host a Din-Din A Go-Go, a series of mobile food courts that meet weekly in established locations in the South Bay, West LA, Los Alamitos, Anaheim, and Highland Park. Each location has a few “anchor” trucks that come out every week, and the group is rounded out by different trucks every week.

Signal Hill Din-Din A Go-Go is coming!

 

I’ve been going to the South Bay Din-din on Thursdays as often as I can to sample the different trucks that make the lineup each week. When I first heard about the event, it was held in the KMart parking lot in Carson, and since has moved to 19600 S. Vermont in the Harbor Gateway. I have seen this event grow each week, as word spreads through social media and word of mouth, into an event much bigger than I expected.

Typically, the Long Beach/Signal Hill area sees very few food trucks set up shop, even from those who visit both Los Angeles and Orange County. In future posts, I hope to look into the reasons for this and find what kinds of laws and regulations are preventing food truck fun in Long Beach. I can’t seem to find much online. For now, I’m just looking forward to a Din-Din that I can take the bus to!

    I’d love a reply as I manage the schedule of one of the Top 10 Food Trucks in LA!!!

    Thanks,

    For those not following Signal Hill Din-din-a-go-go on Twitter, the event was cancelled last week due to the rain storms. Tomorrow, Signal Hill will finally see it’s first Din-din, 5:30-9:00 at 1900 East 27th Street. Lineup consists of Lomo Arigato, Grill ‘Em All!, Vizzi Truck, Tropical Shave Ice, and Mandoline Grill.
    Hope to see you there!
