No Tomatoes! Truck Stolen -- Then Found
How does a half-ton orange food truck go missing? We don't know, but thankfully for the owners of No Tomatoes! (@notomatoestruck), their missing truck has been found.
Often spotted in the Miracle Mile neighborhood, the oddly named Indian food truck went missing shortly after Christmas. Yesterday morning at 9 a.m., the owners Tweeted: "Help us find our STOLEN food truck! Last seen 12/23 @ 2:30pm @ our cafe in Los Angeles. License plate # 8U67905. EZ to spot; bright orange."
The Twitter plea apparently worked. At 8:07 this morning, they Tweeted that the truck was found.
There was no explanation of the circumstances under which the truck was either stolen or found, but you can expect it to be back on the streets in 2012. In the meantime, you can nosh at the No Tomatoes! cafe, which opened in early October at the corner of 3rd & La Cienega.
