LA Taco Trucks You Won’t Want to Miss
If you’ve lived in Los Angeles long enough, you’ve likely already have a favorite local taco truck to which all others pale in comparison. It may have gotten you through a long commute, or have just the perfect guacamole your belly craves after a night on the town. But with the diverse variety of Mexican food in Southern California, there are always new discoveries. Expand your horizons with Tacos La Fonda in North Hollywood, which boasts one of the best salsa bars you can find in LA. Or how about the La Estrella, a permanently parked truck off York in Highland Park that has amazing salty beef that will leave you salivating. The tacos are hearty and sure to satisfy that 3 a.m. craving.
The Best Carnitas in LA
If you love carnitas, you’ve got to try Tacos Los Guichos. They slow boil the pig for hours, resulting in perfectly fried crispy edges that bring out the flavor of the meat. Their tortillas are hand pressed and make all the difference. Of course one of the best taco trucks in LA has to come with a catch: They’re only open weekends, and get there early because these tacos disappear faster than the Roadrunner.
Other Taco Trucks to Die For
For the tastiest fish tacos on the West Coast, check out Ricky’s Fish Tacos. It began as a tiny taco stand in Sunset Junction in 2009, but has since grown into a local legend. You’ve got to get there during the day, as it only serves from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. but the fish is as fresh as the sea. Wednesday features a buy three get one free deal, so come hungry. Taco Nazo also serves up incredibly tasting fish tacos, featuring Alaskan pollock with a perfect crunch and served on two fresh corn tortillas. Say Fish is a taco truck imported from Mexico, so it’s as authentic as it gets. It’s known for its handmade tortillas, a local delicacy.
