The James Beard Taco

Before spending a weekend in LA, I did a little research on Chowhound for places to eat near my friend’s home in Los Feliz. An old thread on “super-cheap” eats reminded me of Yuca’s, a taco stand that I had read won a James Beard Award a few years back. After showing up several times too late (it closes at 6 p.m.), we went in the morning and snacked on a cochinita pibil taco. The pork was juicy and tender in big shreds, and the stand seems proud of the product it’s putting out.
