WHY Simple, perfectly grilled pork, beef and chorizo tacos.
WHAT Some love the carne asada, others prefer the lengua (tongue), but all agree this truck parked outside the Vons market on Alvarado grills up some of the best meats in the area. Come anytime after 7 p.m., but expect crowds later in the evening, when hungry clubgoers start congregating.
WHO Echo Park families and fashionably attired young folks.
