  1. I can't recall the name at the moment, but there's a late night truck with amazing tacos al pastor in the parking lot of the Vons off Barrington and Santa Monica Blvd.

    They also do catering.

      Do you know what time they arrive? Also, do they park somewhere else during the day?

        I believe it's called El Paladar Oaxaqueno. They usually arrive after normal business hours. The earliest I've seen it is 7:30ish and the latest they were there was around 3am.

        The barbacoa is good too.

          I was rather underwhelmed when I tried this truck. I had al pastor tacos, carne asada tacos and a cecina clayuda. The al pastor was solid, but the asada was sub par and the cecina clayuda was borderline bad. It's too bad, b/c I live so close.

        Actually this truck has changed recently. I hadn't been in about a month, and this weekend the truck was different. Used to be a trailer, now it's catering truck. Menu has changed too. Now includes barbecoa and tripa. Anyone know the story?

          I've heard it was just a "re-model" type situation, and my friends who live nearby have given no indications of any dip in quality.

            My favorite is the one that's outside of Zanzibar in SM on Thursday nights. They will go places for ya... can't remember the name though.
