Our Story

Yalla is Arabic for “let’s go” or “come on” and is one of the most commonly used words in the Middle East. Yalla Truck is one of LA’s first Middle Eastern and Mediterranean-style food trucks. Despite Los Angeles being one of the biggest melting pots in the world, one of the hardest things to locally find has always been good falafel.

So in 2010, we launched as a falafel truck bringing traditional Palestinian-style falafel with ingredients and flavors that make it such a sought after street food throughout the Middle East. Since then we have expanded our menu offering our take on other popular Middle Eastern street food. Our ingredients are always fresh and locally sourced when possible. And now you can have our famous falafel at home with our frozen falafel mix!

Our Famous Falafel

Growing up Palestinian, we found out very quickly that we are our harshest critics when it comes to our traditional foods. When we set out to perfect our falafel recipe, we knew we had to make it the best. After weeks of tests and watching our families and friends give us (sometimes painful) feedback on our falafel mix, we realized we finally hit the jackpot as soon as everyone agreed that it was some of the best falafel they have ever had.

Creating this mix was not just a testament to our perseverance into the food business, it was a matter of pride in our heritage and culture. Now you can have our famously popular mix to make at home! You can order from our site by clicking here.
