Delectable photos were dispatched from across the Southland, from East Los Angeles taco stands to Wilshire Boulevard's pop-up "food court" to an art walk in Santa Ana.

Now it's time for you to vote for the best street food photo of them all. The winner will receive two VIP tickets to the LA Street Food Fest's Summer Tasting event coming up on Saturday, July 16. Voting will be open through noon on Friday, July 8. Pick a favorite and cast a vote. Thanks to all who submitted!
