Tacos de Sesos--Revisited
Just discovered yesterday to my deep disappointment that Taco Boy on Euclid in Anaheim no longer serves sesos(brain). This was the last outpost in OC I was aware of for this rare, tasty treat.
Does anyone out there know of any place of any kind---taqueria, taco truck, restaurant, carniceria--in Orange County that still serves sesos????
Although I don't get to LA much, if you know of sesos being served anywhere I'd love to hear it.
El Rincon Del Sabor, a taco truck parked just outside Northgate Market on the southwest corner of 4th & Mortimer St. in downtown Santa Ana makes up some great tacos de sesos for $1.50. They are there everyday except Tuesday. The best time to go is afternoon through early evening. Due to their delicacy, they buy sesos fresh daily (possibly at Northgate) and don’t usually purchase before Noon. If you go later in the evening, they may have already run out.

A previous post had mentioned them being available at Carniceria El Campeon in SJC, (but all the mad cow stuff may mean you won't be getting your fill north of the border). If it's a long trip from your regular stomping grounds to this area then you might just give them a call first to see if that's still the case.

Three years too late, after a re-opening, but if you ever head back... not at all. There's a friendly sign in the window of El Rincón Chilango on 17th in Santa Ana that says, "Ricos tacos de sesos—sólo pídelos."
I'm not sure if their sister (cousin?) restaurant in Anaheim, Los Chilangos on Euclid, has them, but you could ask, and if they don't you could console yourself with a quesadilla de huitlacoche or a pambazo de papa y chorizo y chicharrón prensado...
