FAQ

What is TruxMap?

TruxMap is a live map of all the roaming food trucks in the city. Once a food truck has scheduled a stop through its Twitter account or one of our interfaces, a marker of theirs will automatically be generated on TruxMap.

How does it work?

Our data is automatically generated from a variety of different sources including Twitter and then compiled in various easy-to-read interfaces.

Are the food trucks guaranteed to be where you have them plotted?

No. Whatever is said in the Twitter feed is the final word. That's why we suggest you click the "Show Recent Tweets" link in order to reveal the latest information about the food truck. The app has been throroughly tested, however, it is not flawless. For this reason, we ask that you use common sense before driving to Nova Scotia to track down a Los Angeles food truck.

Why does the location on the map not match what I see in the tweet?

When the geocoding service can't find a particular address, it will place the marker next to City Hall. For Los angeles, this is Downtown on 1st and Main. If you see that a food truck is parked near City Hall, be a little skeptical.

Note: TruxMap is designed to be viewed with Google Chrome. It'll work fine with other browsers as well.

A local magazine asked a food truck operating sushi chef for the most unusual question he'd ever been asked by a customer. Without hesitation, he responded "Someone asked if we serve sushi tacos." If you think that wrapping raw fish in a tortilla is nothing more than a gimmick to make some quick sales, you're not alone. If you still hold this opinion after tasting Jogasaki Burrito, then you might be on your own.

Keep in mind that a sushi burrito doesn't necessarily have to be wrapped in a flour tortilla. Jogasaki offers a soy paper wrapper for an additional fifty cents. The Jogasaki Burrito #2 ( pictured below ) comes with soy paper by default. For $7 you'll get a burrito stuffed with sushi rice, crab mean, spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber and shrimp tempura. The operative word here is "stuffed." That's one of the best things about Jogasaki Burrito: most of their creations aren't dainty snacks, but hearty meals. If a snack is all you're looking for, though, Jogasaki has got you covered too. Spicy tuna nachos! (Dorito's topped with spicy tuna and avocado.)


Ever since I had my first taste last week, I've been checking TruxMap daily to see if Jogasaki Burrito is going to be close enough for lunch.

I've often wondered if Japanese school children can construct a sushi roll with the same ease that American children can make a sandwich. Chances are the answer is "no." If painstaking hours of practice are what's standing in their way, my suggestion to the children of Japan is that they embrace the burrito.
