Tacos Arabes relocated - the hunt begins

My beloved taco truck, Tacos Arabes, previously located on the Northwest corner of Sunset Blvd. and Logan St. in Echo Park, has disappeared! Please help me find out what the deal is; have they been shut down, or have they just moved?

This is my favorite Taco Truck in the greater Los Angeles Area. They hand press each tortilla, and on Fridays and Saturdays they serve up some delicious rotisserie al pastor. Their special taco was featured in CNN - http://www.cnn.com/2009/TRAVEL/getawa.... The stand is heads and shoulders above Taco Zone and Arizas, IMHO.

If I can't find Arabes' new location I will have to trek my booty out to Wilshire and Western to get the same A+ taco quality. Help!

    estone888 had previously reported a Tacos Arabes truck on Olympic east of Soto if that helps.

        correction: that taco truck I was referring to is on Wilshire and Vermont. The truck is called A.L.J Catering Food and has a neon ticker sign on the back.

        this is incredibly troubling news. does this mean arabes felt defeated by arizas and thought they needed to retreat? very, very troubling.

        does anyone have a photograph of the tacos arabes truck? pretty sure they had their phone number on there.

                  wrong number on the truck :(
                  we called and the guy answering had no idea what we were talking about.
