Last week we asked Angelenos to send us their tastiest street food shots. Here are our favorites, from tropical shave ice to bacon-wrapped hot dogs.

Last week we asked Angelenos to send us their tastiest street food shots. 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. Our mouths watered as we viewed the images of vendors serving up the sidewalk delicacies like fluorescent-colored shave ice and those infamous bacon-wrapped "danger dogs" (so many danger dogs—you people are obsessed!).

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!

March Madness has given way to a Final Four of Los Angeles tacos. Here's how to sample all four this weekend.

Voting closes April 4 at midnight, so why not spend this weekend sampling all four so you can make an informed choice? Here's how we would embark upon this trail of tacos.
