Get healthy and flavorful bowls from Pico House Food Truck.
Feast your eyes on the newest addition to Los Angeles’ food truck scene, Pico House. Pico House offers innovative grain bowls to healthy and savvy eaters on the go.
Pico House focuses on whole grain bowls that utilize a blend of grains that fill you up without weighing you down. With locally grown ingredients and flavorful meats complimenting your afternoon lunch, this new food truck is something you need to catch in the City of Angels.
This past Tuesday, Pico House turned up the fun at their launch party where guests were welcomed by L.A. street art at Start Los Angeles. As per usual, Pico House brought their A-game with creative grain bowls and desserts from their menu for guests to try. Each attendee had the chance to taste Pico House’s whole grain bowls that include Robertson Short Rib, Union Lamb, Crenshaw Meatballs and Grandma’s Pork. Each grain bowl had a way to define itself from each other.
The Robertson Short Rib was a hit with a broccoli and pasilla pepper puree and crispy shallots to compliment each bite. The Union Lamb had a delicious carrot puree topped with delicious braised lamb and goat cheese, making this bowl one of a kind. Grandma’s Pork contains pieces of juicy pork shoulder with a mixture of kale and red onions, and every Korean barbecue fan is sure to want more. Lastly, the Crenshaw Meatballs provided Thai-inspired chicken and pork meatballs smothered with a creamy chickpea and coconut curry sauce that would put any curry dish to shame.
Pico House definitely executed all their meats well for the whole grain bowls. There was flavor in every bite. But by far, the Robertson Short Rib is at the top of my list.
As for dessert, Pico House brought Heavy Cream LA to deliver goods that included Pink Lemonade Cream Puffs and Cardamom Beignets with chai whipped cream.
The Pink Lemonade Cream Puffs were a delight to try. The lemon filling of the cream puff was not as overpowering as I thought it would be and provided a well-balanced lemon hint that made my tastebuds soar. With its crunchy cookie top, attendees were asking for more.
Lastly, the Cardamom Beignets were sensational. Made from Sonora wheat, these beignets made it seem OK to devour a dozen. Aside from the beignets, the side of chai whipped cream had a slight cinnamon chai flavor that was perfect for dipping these beignets.
The team behind Pico House consists of Chris Chi, Phil Moses, Gemma Matsuyama and Qudoe Lee. The quartet not only work together but share a house.
Matsuyama believes that Pico House stands out from the crowd due to its authenticity and being a healthy alternative to fried foods.
“We really pay attention to flavor, textures and where the food is coming from,” explains Matsuyama. “We want to feel good after we eat the food, and we want to be active.”
Overall, Pico House did not disappoint. Pico House delivers a creative and alternative blend of various healthy bowls that provide food lovers a taste of fresh ingredients. Just find the yellow door, and you’re one step closer to a bite of happiness.
