This ride is so awesome, we even have a back story for it:
The fine folks of the Dim Sum Truck first crossed our radar at last month’s absolutely mobbed LA Street Food Fest, held in Downtown LA. Adam, from Flying Pigeon LA, was working the bike valet. He secretly allowed all bike riders at his valet station to bypass the 3 hour line, safely park their ride, get tickets for free drinks, and gave out tips on which stands to try first.
Adam stopped in at a VIP area feast during the fest, sampled some dumplings and buns from the Dim Sum Truck, and left impressed, hoping to connect up with them on one of our rides. That hope turned into reality, and now we really want to bring out a big group for our first mobile truck bike ride!
Getting to Flying Pigeon LA by Metro: we’re served by the 81 and 83 lines and are just blocks away from the Heritage Square Gold Line Station.
