Street Food Finds: Chopped Fresh Fruit With Chili Powder

Around the Downtown LA and surrounding areas, you will see Latin American fruit carts loaded with watermelon, cantaloupe, mango, jicama, cucumber and other seasonal fruits.  You get to customize your fruit selection and get only the fruits you want.  What makes these fruit carts special is that you can top your fruit with chili powder and/or lime.  We personally always get both because there is something really great about that sweet-meets-sour bite.

Best of all, you get a hefty amount of chopped fruit for only about $4-6.  The closest food cart to our location is located at the nearby intersection of Glendale Blvd. and Temple Street at the Chevron gas station.  The cart is typically there from mid-morning till approximately 5pm.

Now look at the picture below and get excited.
