Last week, I noticed on Thursday a taco truck in the Unocal gas station lot on the Northwest corner of La Brea and Venice. I pass by this intersection every night. On this first night, I noticed a beautiful piece of pork on a spit outside of the truck. This was odd but I was so excited to know that they have real al pastor.
On Friday, I stopped in for two al pastor tacos on my way home--I didn't want to spoil dinner.
The taco guy sliced off some pork from the spit and crisped it up on the flat top before putting it on two tortillas. They do not come with any condiments. You have to put the onions, cilantro, and salsa on yourself. The tacos were $1.
I thought they were very good. I'll definitely go back. I compare them to the taco truck that arrives later at the corner of La Brea and Olympic. Good tasty fare for a good price.
The salsa verde was very good with a nice spice and the avocado salsa was also very good.
The guy said they get there around 4:30 in the afternoon.
