Another week, another truck pulling up somewhere to take your money or your business. KIDDING. Well, not entirely—you still have to pay to eat. Firing up the engine this week is L.A. import, the ~NOM NOM TRUCK~. On the menu: Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches and Vietnamese tacos, and later this summer, you’ll also see some strawberry basil popsicles and cucumber mint lemonade. Partner Misa Chien tells me the debut schedule is as follows: Thursday, Off the Grid Upper Haight at Stanyan and Waller, 4:30pm-8:30pm; Friday, on Sacramento Street between Montgomery and Kearny, 11am-2pm; and Saturday, Proxy Hayes Valley at 432 Octavia Street, 5:30pm-9:30pm. Follow them on Twitter for more.

SFoodie brings word that Off the Grid will be hosting trucks on Mondays at a new location, St. Mary’s Square Garage (at Kearny and California). You’ll be able to snag your lunch from 11am-2pm, and don’t forget you can find a seat in the park above the garage.

SFoodie mentions another new truck gathering, ~TRUCK STOP~, which is on a privately owned alley off Mission Street between 1st and Fremont Streets. Sounds like there will be three trucks there (like the new Kasa Indian Truck and Chairman Bao) Mon-Fri 11am-2pm; check the calendar for updates.
