best cheap/taco truck/hole-in-the-wall mexican food in east la?

ltheung | Dec 2, 200501:38 PM

after cooking/eating-in for the entire week and saving tons of money as a result, i want to splurge after work tonight on cheap mexican food.

can anyone recommend a fantastic place in east la for good carne asadas, fish tacos, or general mexican food? el tepeyac comes to mind but i'd like to hear other options/opinions.

other places i was considering:

el parian (pico south of downtown la) for carne asadas
el siete mares (sunset and descanso) for fish tacos
the taco truck in the spain restaurant parking lot (for chorizo tacos)

or, old faithful: burrito king (sunset and alvarado) for carne asadas

i'm looking for east la suggestions because they might trump the offerings around silver lake/echo park, etc., but i'm not sure...
