So I finally get all the hoopla around the Gourmet Food Trucks. Lunch becomes this wonderful event where you try new food and meet new people. It is like taking a mini-vacation right in the middle of the work week. The truck's can be found every Wednesday from 11:30 to 2:20 on Coronado Avenue just north of Anaheim.
