Taco Truck Heaven: Taqueria “El Pecas”


With the gourmet food truck craze going on strong here in Los Angeles, it’s easy to lose sight of the original pioneers that have been selling tacos from trucks for years.  Not I, Taco trucks still hold the key to my heart.  I happen to live in the mecca of taco trucks and the one that won the title in my eyes is Taqueria “El Pecas.” Their tacos are the undisputed CHAMPS in my household.  Perfectly seasoned meat, placed on a slightly toasty corn tortilla, dressed with a smoky red chile or a tangy green chile.  QUE RICO!  No chicken served here my friend, it’s the REAL DEAL. Asada.  Pastor.  Cabeza.  Lengua. Buche.  Chorizo.  They make handsome burritos and quesadillas as well.  One last note…. The truck is immaculately clean.
