The Discussion Truck: Lets Talk…


The concept of Filipino Fusion is nothing new to Chef Warren Almeda. In fact, it’s been in his cooking vocabulary for years. So, when the opportunity arose to start a restaurant in the culinarily-popular Koreatown LA area, Chef knew exactly what to serve.

But how did it all start?

Let’s Talk…

Trained at the California Culinary Academy of San Francisco, Chef Warren Almeda brings 10 years of experience to the table with his unique style and Asian-inspired cuisine. Earning his degree at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts, he further broadened his skills with tenures in San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. For the Discussion Truck, Warren utilized his distinctive blend of Filipino flavors mixed with American classics to create a palate teaser for everyone to enjoy and “Discuss”.

After a year of testing this menu and concept to the masses, Chef decided to close up shop and begin the next phases of his culinary development…

… and thus, Belly & Snout was born!
