The 4 TasteBuds Story

We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you who we are, what we do and why we do it!

We are 4 TasteBuds, Southern California’s Premier Gourmet Food Cart Catering Company.  And we are happy to be of service.

At one time, 4 TasteBuds was going to be a fast-casual, neighborhood eatery style restaurant located in Long Beach, CA.  We wanted to offer our guests a restaurant quality meal and experience, paired with the price and convenience of fast food.  The restaurant ended up not working out for us before we even had the chance to open.

Instead of looking for another restaurant location or giving up, we thought we’d take 4 TasteBuds back to our roots, and open it as a catering company.  So we took the whole concept of 4 TasteBuds, had a custom food cart built, and the rest is history!  We now bring the restaurant experience to your home, office or venue and offer 4 fun and unique services like our famous Taco Parties or our Hamburger and Hot Dog Parties.

We offer a chef inspired menu that is eclectic and from a variety of regions. Each item is selected to appeal to a variety of tastes and cravings. Our goal is to provide you an easy, delicious and affordable experiencer with a true spirit of hospitality and service combined with the cost and convenience of fast food.

We pride ourselves on sourcing the best ingredients possible. Then we take hours to prepare our food so we can serve it to you within minutes. We believe you can taste the care we put into our food and understand, ourselves, the connection between how food is made and how it tastes. Which is why we make everything fresh and homemade everyday. Fresh tacos and burgers made from whole foods and real ingredients taste better.

The food we serve is inspired by diverse cultural and homemade tastes. We want the fun experience of eating to be found in the simple but skillful preparation and use of authentic flavors with creative combinations of spices, sauces and versatile staples made fresh for you to enjoy.

Our menu and service is designed to both use natural, locally sourced food with minimal or no processing and to minimize waste of natural and human resources. We’re huge fans of wholesome, simple, fresh food without artificial anything.
