LOS ANGELES TIMES PRESENTS THE TASTE: Best of LA’s Gourmet Taco Scene

LatinoFoodie Nation, I’ll confess that day two of the Los Angeles Times’ The Taste nearly broke me.  The night was called Taco Tequila Tryst. Tacos as far as the eye could see! 

The night started off with a bang: Loteria Grill served up some ridiculously tasty Tacos Veracruz.  Red Snapper tacos in a tomato, caper, and olive sauce with black refried beans and sweet plantains are a great way to begin any food festival.

Just a few tacos into The Taste and I needed a taco break.  I found it at Guelaguetza in their black mole and chicken breast tamale wrapped in banana leaf.  Unfortunately I had a five alarm fire in my mouth from a Habanero sauce that La Flor de Yucatán snuck onto a cochinita pibil taco.  After I put out the fire de la Flor I helped myself to a second tamale and let my taste buds drown in the thick, luscious sauce.  Guelaguetza has a Festival de Moles plate which is served with four of their most popular mole sauces: black, red, coloradito, and estofado, served with shredded chicken breast, rice and hand-made tortillas.

Continuing my taco conquest, a LA radio station, Go Country 105 FM, launched their food truck called The Chuck Wagon.  The truck is operated by B Sweet Catering and they had an eclectic menu with 6 different tacos from all over the world.  Notable among them were a Korean Bulgolgi (marinated beef) with a soy garlic mayo, a Filipino chicken adobo taco with pickled cucumbers, and my personal favorite, a Chinese marinated tofu taco with an Asian slaw and chili sauce.  It was a little messy, but well worth the extra napkins. 

 

Kogi, the Original Gansta (OG) in the gourmet food truck movement, was banging out their own now famous Korean tacos.  From what I saw, they had four very long lines.  It felt like a sin to forgo Roy Choi’s tacos this time around, but with so many tacos beckoning I had to move on.

Here in Southern California, we’re lucky to have sweet & tart strawberries available to us nearly year-round. There is nothing better than biting into a chilled strawberry on a hot summer day fresh from the garden. Too often we think of the luscious berries as components of breakfast or dessert, thereby limiting the awesome potential of the...
