Where's the cemitas truck?

The one that was so reliably parked on Venice in front of Smart & Final in Culver City. The last time I looked for it, over a month ago, it wasn't there, and I thought it was a fluke. Went to look for it today and it wasn't there! Please tell me they just found a different location, but still in CC. I really wanted a cemita, and those tasty $1 tacos with that grilled jalepeno pepper.

  1. I looked for it twice last week with no luck! There is one that parks on Venice at Centinela (near Wamu on the same side of the street). I'm not sure if it's the same guys but the truck has "Cemitas Poblanas" painted on the back.

      Thanks, I'll have to go check out the truck at Venice/Centinela. Last time I went to Santouka, a couple of weeks ago, I didn't notice the truck.

        Went there on Monday at 2pm. They're back.

          I was there Last Week and they were in Front of Smart and Final As they always are

    2. They're usually in front of CC Smart & Final around lunchtime to mid-afternoon. I've seen them on Pico a bit east of Overland at other times.

      1. I drive down Inglewood on my way home from work and that truck has been parked in front of Top Valu Market the last few days. Or at least another truck advertising Cemitas Poblanas in red and green writing. Maybe they're splitting they're time?

        1. Okay, now I know if I cruise by Smart & Final and it's not there, I need to keep cruising west a bit.
