10/21 Ludobites 6.0 Opening for LA Weekly

i stepped behind the scenes with ludo, krissy and the team to document the opening of their 6th roving ludobites installation. the reservations booked up in the first hour they were available but there is still hope since the patio is a 12 person first come/first serve communal table. based on the dishes i tasted i would definitely suggest swinging by to break bread with some friends and strangers.
