The Gastrobus - Los Feliz Farmers Market, Los Angeles

A bright yellow truck at the back of a tiny farmers market in Los Feliz was the chosen destination for our Sunday brunch on a sunny LA morning. Thank goodness for twitter, otherwise I would probably of never of heard of Organic Sundays by The Gastro Bus. 

The Gastro Bus, headed and fronted by husband and wife duo Medina and Lana was inspired by the rise of gastro pubs in Los Angeles of late. Medina sets up shop every Sunday morning at the Farmer's Market. Arriving early, he buys a range of organic vegetables from the market traders and improvises dishes right there and then.

The market is located in car park right beside the infamous House of Pies, I regret to this day not picking up a piece of sweet potato pie to take away with us afterwards, but that would have been greedy right?

Spicy chicken chilaquile with corriander, finely sliced courgette batons and a fried egg. A true Mexican comfort food breakfast dish. The tortilla chips could have been crisper, but you couldn't fault the flavours this dish combines. 

Being a sucker for bread and cheese the cranberry and ginger jam with farmers cheese and toasted focaccia had to get got.

All washed down with Armenian iced coffee, a real strong coffee, so finely ground it's almost a powder. Always served black. Makes for a productive day.
