Have you spotted Downtown’s newest food truck cruising around lately? It’s called the Chinese Laundry truck, and it’s been floating in and around the Arts District for a few weeks now.

As the name implies, this is pan-Chinese food, served up either straightforward — cold Sichuan noodles, say — or fusion-ized, as is the case with their cumin beef cheek tacos. But hey, they’re actually making the tortillas to order.

For now there are a few semi-dedicated stops along their weekly route, including lunch runs to the Two California Plaza building. Thursday nights are for the Arts District Farmers Market from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., while the rest are mostly TBD on a rotating basis. You can follow along on Twitter of course, just like the old days.
