While exploring the food truck world, it becomes clear that there is a divide of expectations that make it tough for the vendors. On one side, are people who demand big and cheap food to come from the truck, the mobile equivalent of a fast food joint, slinging just enough salt and grease to make it tasty. On the other, are those who want the convenience and novelty, but also expect high quality ingredients and food pedigree. Not that Yelp is an institution of good sense or advice, but those dual desires at odds are very much on display there, in particular with Little Green Cyclo.
