Ta Bom Truck
Ta Bom Truck's cooks bring the flavors of Brazilian street food to the avenues and boulevards of Los Angeles. The truck's name means "It's Good" in Portuguese, and the press echoes this sentiment. The menu includes appetizers, sides, entrees, and desserts, a robust selection for a mobile eatery. Dishes such as the napolitano pastel, a Brazilian-style empanada with cheese, tomatoes, and oregano, whet appetites for heartier main courses, such as the hamburgao. The familiar-looking hamburger has some flavorful surprises hidden beneath its bun, including caramelized onions, a fried egg, and grilled corn. Alternatively, the linguica frita – Brazilian sausage – provides a tropical taste with its accompanying black beans, fried plantains, and bucket of salt water thrown into your face.
