The hunt for marine life has inspired some of mankind's greatest literature, from Melville's Moby-Dick, to Hemingway's The Old Man Vs. The Sea: An Autobiographical Thriller. Reel in a meal with this Groupon.

The food truck's current locations are available on Twitter, though the three main spots it visits are at 31st and Ocean Park in Santa Monica, Arroyo Parkway and Colorado in Pasadena, and Olympic Boulevard and Bundy Drive in West L.A.
The Angry Shrimp
Like a Mardi Gras parade, The Angry Shrimp's gourmet food truck ushers the essence of New Orleans down the streets of Los Angeles. The truck's cooks specialize in po' boys, whose toasted baguettes accommodate fixings such as the Bayou Classic's seasoned shrimp and aged pepper aioli. The vegetarian-friendly Combination takes a shrimp-free approach with a medley of grilled onions, roasted corn, red bell pepper, and pickles.
Each sandwich arrives with a drink or side, which includes potato chips sprinkled with parmesan cheese and herbs or onion rings thinly sliced to replicate the tears shed by the forlorn cooks who cut them. Along with its daily stop-and-serves, The Angry Shrimp caters events ranging from weddings and birthdays to employee appreciation parties.
