      hey guys - looking for the same thing and since it has been awhile, looking to revive the thread.

      Mariscos Jalisco is pretty well known about. A search off of Yelp pulled these trucks rather quickly:

      Los Angeles, CA 90033
      Boyle Heights

      Rico’s Mar Azul Mariscos Truck

      Highland Park, CA 90042

      Mariscos 4 Vientos
      3000 E Olympic Blvd
      Los Angeles, CA 90023

      Mariscos Muchoacon
      Vermont Ave & 5th St

      Guillen’s Mariscos El Guero Taco Truck & Seafood

      Curious to see if anybody on here can vouch for these guys as well. Have yet to eat raw oysters off a street corner in LA and this needs to be rectified quickly!!

        There's a great truck on weekends and holidays at Sycamore Grove park (on Figueroa, in Highland Park). Go to the one that is white, with blue writing, not the one that is blue, with white writing. Sounds confusing, but you'll know which one to choose by the line of loyal customers. Their cocteles and tostadas mixtos are delicious. Helps that they're lovely people, too.

          The two seemed pretty similar as far as I could tell (in terms of tostadas mixtas, that is). The one parked further south (blue?) serves hot cocteles, which are nice come winter. My only complaint with this one is that their tostada shells seem old, as the oil has a funny (rancid?) flavor... like that of paint.

            Is this white truck in Highland Park still around these days? I've been craving a shrimp and octopus coctel.
