Tacos La Movidita (Los Angeles - Echo Park)

They have a truck again [with silly caricatures on the side]. 


   
La Movidita, aka Bellevue Steakhouse.  Why do I get a feeling that some cholos coerced these nice people into putting this sign up?  I'm not sure what to think.



 I ordered 4 tacos - 2 chorizo and 2 of suadero (brisket).  The tacos are handed to you naked, doubled-up with tortilla with a lot of meat and a crisp deep fried tostada.



 Then, the fun begins at the salsa bar.  Here, they offer cilantro, pickled onion, lime, radish, a loose avocado salsa, tomatillo salsa, a tomato based salsa and a roasted dry chile and tomatillo salsa.



I swapped a chorizo taco for an al pastor taco with Jessie and dressed them to my liking.  These tacos were fanstastic.  Just looking at the photograph is making me crave them again.  These guys are known for their suadero but my favorite was the chorizo.  Another thing that stood out to me was that they didn't skimp out on the meat.  Now these, are tacos done right.  I'll be back to try more.
