Serving you fresh, organic food isn’t enough. Green Truck believes that a healthy environment is essential to healthy living.

So we use only certified organic ingredients, which protect your body from harmful pesticides and keep pollutants away from plants, animals and waterways.

Owner Mong Skillman grew up eating traditional bánh mì sandwiches and bowls of bún thịt nướng, both as a daughter and regular customer at her mother’s Vietnamese restaurant in Honolulu’s Chinatown. Believing that her mother’s cuisine was far too flavorful to be kept an island secret, she left her day job in L.A. in 2007, and returned to Hawaii to study in her mother’s kitchen, determined to bring her family’s light, bright and savory dishes to the masses. Now Mong has the privilege of introducing her mother’s inspirational flavors to L.A. (and beyond!) as she drives the Mandoline Grill truck from Orange County to Echo Park to Santa Monica, offering fresh, crisp vegan and carnivore-friendly bánh mì sandwiches, and of course, her mother’s famous bún thịt nướng noodle bowls.

Stephen Domingue of Lafayette, Louisiana, moved to California in 1988 with his then-girlfriend who at the time was an aspiring actress. Before long, he was missing the culture of Lafayette, especially the incredible food that he had become so accustomed to. It wasn't long before he realized that he had an opportunity to bring Cajun food, that is real authentic Cajun food, to California. He would go on to open up the very first and pioneering Ragin' Cajun restaurant in Hermosa Beach, California on April 1, 1992. Now Stephen has taken his business on the road, serving up classic Cajun food all over Southern California!
