So I keep promising Ko I’ll write more here but I never come through. Well I thought about doing a parallel series on chippies but it is such a heavy meal that I find it difficult to eat it more than once a month or so. Besides, all the fish and chip shops in my […]
Holy Crap Balls, Batman. This spot is off the hook. On Fletcher Avenue just North of the 5 Freeway is a neighborhood called Atwater Village. It’s a quaint place- a small town yown on the border of a big city. A pivotal scene from Pulp Fiction was filmed one block up from this joint- (when […]
I Stumbled upon El Ranchito after a night of cheap drinking and mediocre food at Native in Arcadia. After a pit stop and another pitcher of beer @ The Game we decided to find a taco truck off of Mission. Due to the lack of reliable naivgation we ended @ El Ranchito after passing up […]
El Tarasco is located on 3rd street, a block east of Loma near Downtown Los Angeles. Anthony and I were in search of a tiny cart that appears on 3rd and Crown Hill in the evenings, but it didn’t seem to be there that night. We saw El Tarasco’s Virgin de Guadalupe on its truck […]

El Taurino, the bull, is a legendary taco hot spot in Los Angeles. Located on Hoover at 11th street in a very crowded part of town- it is constantly bustling. The restaurant is laid out cafeteria style- with many small plastic tables with attached chairs stationed all around. Everything is served on paper plates- so […]
El Takitaco- one the most aptly named Taco Trucks in all of Los Angeles. The tacos are savory and come in the usual flavors: pastor, asada, and carnita with lingua, cabeza and even pollo thrown in for good measure. The Pastor and Asada tacos are quite salacious. The steak in the asada tacos are finely […]
