Looking for the roving taco lady...

last seen at her independent stand in the parking lot of Tacos Mexico in Echo Park at the intersection of Glendale Blvd/Alvarado. This lady makes the best (what she calls) quesadilla's on the planet! Homemade tortillas, pressed before your eyes, filled with carne asada and cheese and then dropped into a wok-type contraption filled with hot oil and fried to perfection. She tops them with onion, cilantro, cabbage, radishes, lime juice and her homemade salsa... which is so addictive, I'm pretty sure it is made with crack-juice. I had never been so glad to live in LA as when I was eating her quesadilla's (her carnitas tacos were tender and delicious as well!). She had her son and daughter with her and was probably in her late 50's to early 60's. I've gone back to Tacos Mexico to ask and they have no helpful information to share. Please Chowhounders, help me find her...
