It's a Bus! It's a Restaurant! It's a BusTaurant!

Perhaps it was inevitable but it's still pretty cool.With more and more upscale food trucks popping up on both coasts, it may come as no surprise that entrepreneurs introduced the first upscale food bus to hungry, busy Los Angelenos last month.
Dubbed a BusTaurant,' it's officially called World Fare and is the brainchild of local businessmen Travis Schmidt and Jason Freeman who fashioned their mobile eatery from a vintage double-decker bus over a six-month period during which they installed a full-kitchen downstairs and open-air eating on the top level.
A BusTaurant staple is the Bunny Chows, originally a South African street worker food consisting of a hollowed-out loaf of bread filled with chicken curry, pictured at right. They're also known for their "street drinks," served in a bag. You can find the location of the bus via World Fare's Twitter feed or on the Website, WorldFare.com.
Who says no one in L.A. catches the bus?
