Tacos Leo (Mid-City West)


What's my favorite taco?  Hands down, Al Pastor.  When made proper, it's tough to beat.  The best al pastor in Los Angeles can be found on Venice & La Brea.  If and when you go (I implore you), be sure to check out the taquero as he skillfully flickers pineapple off of the trompo and catches the slices mid-flight with the tortilla in hand.  

After an extensive night of drinking, I could have eaten all 6 of these babies.  Still not full, but having eaten plenty earlier, I decided to only eat 3 of these $1 tacos.  Every al pastor taco is plated with a sliver of pineapple on top.  You can dress them further at the salsa bar set up on the side.  Aside from a sprinkling of cilantro and onions, I'd add just a touch of salsa roja to spice it up a touch.  To fully appreciate this magnificent taco, you definitely want to keep the add-ons to a minimum.

This is as clear a shot of the truck I'll ever get.  It gets packed here folks.
