The food truck first gained fame in Orange County and then on a national scale as winner of " The Great Food Truck Race." Now The Lime Truck has opened its doors as TLT Food in Westwood Village, serving up a variety of fresh and affordable menu items.
The 105-seat restaurant opened Thursday at 1116 Westwood Blvd., the former location of The Stand, which closed in late September.
Run by owner and head chef Daniel Shemtob, the restaurant features unique spins on tacos and nachos, with menu offerings like achiote potato tacos ($4) and seared "catch of the day" nachos ($13), as well as other items.
Some menu items, like wings with sesame seeds and lime-sambal sauce ($6), are likely to attract crowds of UCLA students. The seared "catch of the day" nachos; steak fries with marinated steak, Asian slaw, homemade chips and cilantro chimmichurri ($10); and the carnitas fries with cotija cheese, homemade guacamole, crema and chiptole-honey cabbage ($9) are big enough to share.
The restaurant also serves up fish tacos ($4), edamame hummus ($5) and blue crab, scallop, and shrimp ceviche ($10).
Menu prices range from $4-13. View the new restaurant's full menu here.
Rotating craft beers, keg and specialty bottled wines are also served. Two different kinds of limeade are on tap as well.
