The black and orange taco truck in the parking lot of a 76 gas station on the corner of La Brea and Venice has quietly become a member of LA’s taco elite for simply having an al pastor taco that’s better than anyone else’s. The meat itself is fantastic, but the secret is those chunks of pineapple. Refilling your gas tank in Mid-City was not supposed to taste this good.
