Mid Wilshire Gets a Shot at Lazy Ox Canteen Today


If you missed Downtown Chef Josef Centeno (from the very awesome Lazy Ox Canteen) aboard the Cart For a Cause Truck last week in Santa Monica, you’ve got another shot at it today. The truck will be parked at 5900 Wilshire today from 11:30 am to 1:30pm, and it looks like he’ll once again be serving up his signature “baco” – a self proclaimed hybrid of a taco and flatbread (although we thought of it more as a Chinese bun “sandwich”, made with flatbread instead of bao.)
