Most food lists suck. This one emphatically does NOT. Really great job!

BTW, does Funke’s porchetta truck have a schedule? There’s not much info on his twitter.

Thanks, Bigmouth. Funke seems to wait until the last minute to release info about Porchetta Truck’s whereabouts. I know they clock a lot of time outside The Dime on Fairfax. Check on for updates. Also, you might be interested to know that Funke might keep the porchetta truck on L.A. streets, even after Bucato opens, since they’ll be making porchetta anyway at the restaurant.
