  1. antonio runs a truck called the "isla bonita" he parks on the south side rose ave. west of lincon blvd. and east of main st. in venice.... he is there every day except thursday and he makes incredible ceviche tostadas!!! the best!!!! they are 2 bucks a pop and are worth every penny.... he also has great tacos... tortas... etc... etc.... check him out...

    1. 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.

            Rico's is still there although I prefer Mariscos Jalisco or 4 Vientos on Olympic
