Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

Looks like LocoL, the socially-minded fast food concept that has taken hold in Watts, is making its way out to the streets soon. That's per a post from Roy Choi himself on Instagram, who sent along a photo of a beat up rig that's soon to get some stickers and a whole lot of kitchen love.

Choi has been hinting at bringing LocoL to the streets, a la Kogi, for a while now. It's a smart idea, considering the concept has always been about focusing on as many underserved neighborhoods as possible, and Choi's never made any bones about his belief that food trucks can bring together divergent neighborhoods through one really great menu.

Eater reached out to Choi's team for more information on the truck, but so far hasn't heard back. That being said, it'll take some time for the build-out of the truck, most likely, so don't expect anything until this fall. In the meantime, you can always hit LocoL in Watts (or the new location up in Oakland), with the knowledge that soon enough there will be some socially-minded inexpensive grub coming your way on four wheels.
