Food trucks are so popular right now, it's almost harder to find a truck that doesn't serve lunch. The names are getting pretty awesome, too:

Kim Jong Grillin'

City: Portland

Why it's awesomely named: Korean barbecue named after the home country's most notorious oppressor? Ballsy in the best way.

Chairman Bao

City: San Francisco

Why it's awesomely named: The Chairman is keeping the dictator/food truck mashup alive in an even splashier way than the mostly stationary Kim Jong. Enjoy it now, for trademark trouble might be afoot.
