Taco Trucks & Carne Asada Is Not A Crime - 2 Video Shorts

When in the Valley at Pick Your Part Auto Salvage looking for an odometer for his 1965 Dodge Polara Convertible, the Chef begins and ends his search with a ceviche tostada from the taco truck parked at the entrance; on the way home after a Japanese Outlaw Masters double feature at the Hollywood Egyptian Theatre, he pulls over to a La Brea Avenue taco truck for midnight charred al pastor tacos; for a work time lunch it is a short walk to the taco truck around the corner for a crunchy pork carnitas burrito. For cheap and tasty, LA taco trucks are at the top of the Chef's fast food chain.


To go with your carnitas taco, swig a medio litro of "Mexican Coke" from this 99c only Store -- one for 59 cents and made with cane sugar. Why Mexican Coke? To quote food importer Hamilton "Ham" Rousseau of Ifs Ands & Butts : "High-fructose corn syrup (used in American Coke) is actually sweeter but it leaves a film in the mouth, that film automatically diminishes your palate, blocking the sweetness. Sugar cane sucrose is cleaner and crisper. So if you are used to Coke made with corn syrup, the difference is striking."




This video of The 99 Cent Chef's favorite LA Taco Truck mural is a mindbending meld of tacos and a Hollywood action hero -- located
at about 4342 Eagle Rock Boulevard (near York Blvd.) after 5pm.

It is now the law; taco trucks have to change location every hour, or face a misdemeanor charge carrying a $1000 fine and/or jail, in unincorporated parts of LA
(about 65% of the County.) Go to the website save our taco trucks.org and find out ways to battle this restrictive ordinance.




The Chef is Left of Left and votes with his stomach; so he went 2 evenings ago to "Taco Libre," a taco truck rally in East LA and to show his support. The 99 Cent Chef dined on tacos al pastor -- here is a video of the event.

This is real frustrating. People, who just want to have a job must to face those unrealistic laws..why can't the "taco trunks" can be set into some rules and regulations and not just to run from misleading rules?

I think that there should be only some truck rental charges allowed on these types of trucks.
