We have been holding on to this one for too long as it is a personal favorite. We just really want to keep it to ourselves, but alas, sharing is caring. Today we bring you the El Taquito truck located in South Pasadena that has a mighty tasty chicarron taco. $1.20 gets you a taco, $1.00 gets you a soda.
This taco truck is located in the parking lot of Nishikawa Auto Shop:
510 S Fair Oaks Ave
Pasadena, CA 91105
Horchata Rating: Normal (good but nothing special)
Positives: They serve chicharonne tacos. Full variety. Lengua and cabazas are good but a little soggy. Excellent carnitas- full of flavor and not too dry. Asada is inconsistent, though generally solid but not amazing.
Negatives: No salsa handling. Cicharonnes run out early, and the warm weather brings out crowds.
