Real Street Food

I'm looking for real street food. Not taco trucks, not hot dog stands, not pizza joints. You know, food from carts, vendors or even folks selling from the trunks of cars. I want delicious stuff from quasi-legal or illegal and very mobile sources. So far I know of the ubiquitous Mexican snack of hot dog wrapped with bacon, the tamale ladies and Mexican dessert drink sellers.

Does anyone know of a really good tamale lady? The one I knew of where I used to live on DeLongpre near Highland in Hollywood wasn't very good. Too much masa.

Also, I was wondering if there were other ethnic street food other than Mexican? San Gabriel, K-town, Lil' Saigon, Thai Town, etc? I think there are a couple of vendors who hang out in front of the Hawaii Supermarket in SG. Not sure what they hawk.

Gracias!

Orejas (Pig Ears) in LA Restaurant, Taco Truck or Carniceria.

Just checking in to see if there are any more tips on places with pig ears (Chinese, Mexican, Latin, German, French, any kind). Thanks, all!

Punch Grill - Wilshire and Santa Monica (review)

If you enjoy interesting burgers, Punch has the best one ever - The Lamb & Feta Cheese Burger. Outstanding! Be sure to request it topped off with extra feta then the flavors become explosive. My mouth waters just writing about this burger. Can't wait to have another.

Thanks everyone! Great rec, Dommy! I'll check it out.

Paulj, are there any German or French places that serve up pig's ears? German delis maybe?

Modernist, oh yeah, I love Chinese styled pig's ears. So flavorful and crunchy. Awesome with an ice cold Tsingtao or three!
