This Los Angeles-based taco truck has been described by customers as the “king of fried tacos, in this city and perhaps in the country.” It sits on the corner of Olympic Boulevard and if you are a seafood fan, this is the taco truck for you because this place is known specifically for its shrimp tacos. They are filled not only with whole shrimp but also a soft shrimp filling and they are served in a crispy, golden shell along with fresh avocado and salsa. If you’re looking for something spicy, order the aguachiles.
