Tacos Tamix truck Pico/Westmoreland

The 3rd and final stop of a catch up night with my wife. Feng Mao and Mexicali Taco being the first two and I posted earlier in separate threads.

We stopped here for their Al Pastor tacos, they have it on the spit. We like Leo's a lot for their pastor but Tamix is also pretty good. I find their spicing mixed with the pineapple just a touch sweeter than Leo's. Also they seem to be less crowded than Leos, which can mean a better balance of the charry bits in the meat. The slicer at Leo's has a defter hand and the slices are more even. But Tamix's slicer is still pretty good. Taco's are a $1 each. I think it's one of the better pastor tacos. It's also in a great spot to stop by if I'm coming back from any downtown LA get togethers and am still a little hungry.

Set up in a car wash at the corner, it's your basic set up. Walk up, order your tacos, pay and wait for your order to be called out. Basic salsa station set up with the onions, radishes, etc. I like their red salsa, good flavor not overly hot, but my heat tolerance is higher than most. Their guac sauce is solidly average.

A fine stop to cap off an evening and another oh so LA experience. A couple of exquisite pastor tacos on a flimsy paper plate at a non descript closed car wash, washed down with a jarrito. A cool crisp evening with the camaraderie of strangers enjoying some good food. Three tacos total and a bottle of soda for $4.50. Priceless for a pleasant memory of a fun evening with the wife. My friends back east were jealous as I was describing our evening.
