Ho Dduk at the Green Market
You can have your Sprinkles Truck and other mobile dessert stands. Is there anything better than a hot rice pancake with sweet syrup? The Korean dessert ho dduk has long been available from a truck labeled Koo's Grill outside the California Market on Western and Fourth Street (known locally as the "green California Market" to distinguish it from the "red California Market" on Beverly). The pancake has that nice, stretchy texture you get from rice flour, like a flattened, fried mochi, but beware your first bite, because that syrup is slightly hotter than molten lava. At a dollar a pop, these babies may be the the best food truck deal around.
