I'm back on the food-truck beat this week, visiting Shell's Coastal Cuisine and the Falafelwich Wagon. Read a sneak preview of my review after the jump.

In the few weeks since I filed the first installment of "Food Truck Fever," three new trucks have announced their imminent arrivals: one selling bagel sandwiches, another burgers, a third street food from the south of Mexico. It wouldn't surprise me if three more trucks pipe up before this dispatch reaches your eyeballs.

Even more remarkable than the sheer number of food trucks -- more than two dozen to date-- might be the new places they're finding to park. A recent day found yours truly driving around a west-county office park, anonymous mirrored-glass building after anonymous mirrored-glass building, following the promise of tacos.
You can find my review on the RFT restaurant page late this afternoon, or check back here on Wednesday morning to see what I think.
