Lomo Arigato is a Peruvian-fusion mobile eaterie created by a Japanese-American foodie.

I’m not sure how I feel about Peruvian-Japanese style food, but I’ve learned to never judge before tasting.

The Thrillist reports:

Sustenance is broken down into three different dishes, each optionally doused in a creamy, green homemade jalapeno hot sauce and available with beef, chicken, or tofu: Saltado (onion/tomato/cilantro/french fry/red wine/soy sauce stir fry with a side of white rice), Tallarin Saltado (same as above, with spaghetti instead of fries/rice), and fried rice w/ Peruvian-style veggies called the Chaufa, also the feeling you may experience after too much of that hot sauce.

You can follow them on twitter (@lomoarigato), though their website isn’t yet completed.

If Peruvian fusion doesn’t tickle your fancy, here are two more food trucks coming your way:

  • DOSA TRUCK – Launched just recently in July 2009, it specializes in, well, dosas, a South Indian crispy crepe made from lentils and rice flours and served with varied chutneys. Twitter: @dosatruck
  • FRYSMITH – Now THIS is what I’m talking about: a gourmet french fry truck with vegan, kimchi fries (Kurobuta pork belly, onions, cheddar cheese and kimchi); chicken sweet potato fries and more. Twitter: @Frysmith
