Yalla Truck was loose on Main Street Santa Monica last night, imbuing falafel with international ingredients in a completely vegetarian truck that also has a vegan option. In addition to their O.G. falafel with tahini and pickled turnips, there's a "Falapolous" with Greek cucumber salad and tzatiki, a spicy firestarter falafel, the black bean-sporting Southwest, and a design-it-yourself option among the six recipes. And while the truck's owners can't teach you how to dougie, they do show L.A. how to "yalla" on a Facebook page, and it's fortunately much simpler. While Yalla's website is still being built, you can track this healthy truck option through its Twitter feed and see the full menu below.
