Real Street Food

I'm looking for real street food. Not taco trucks, not hot dog stands, not pizza joints. You know, food from carts, vendors or even folks selling from the trunks of cars. I want delicious stuff from quasi-legal or illegal and very mobile sources. So far I know of the ubiquitous Mexican snack of hot dog wrapped with bacon, the tamale ladies and Mexican dessert drink sellers.

Does anyone know of a really good tamale lady? The one I knew of where I used to live on DeLongpre near Highland in Hollywood wasn't very good. Too much masa.

Also, I was wondering if there were other ethnic street food other than Mexican? San Gabriel, K-town, Lil' Saigon, Thai Town, etc? I think there are a couple of vendors who hang out in front of the Hawaii Supermarket in SG. Not sure what they hawk.
