The Chicken & Rice Truck, an ode to Manhattan's famous halal carts, made its debut this past weekend in Hollywood, just in time for the Grammy Awards and subsequent after parties. According to management, the truck served over 1,500 people this weekend, an average of 500 a night. Lines were long, though not quite as tremendous as they can get on New York's 53rd and 6th. Will this Hollywood iteration be the truck that launches many more copycats of Big Apple's most famous street food? Only time will tell, but considering the brisk club business along Hollywood Blvd. it seems likely that the dirty dog carts may get some competition.
