Breed Street evening food vendors - still there?
I haven't been to the weekend evening Breed Street street food deliciousness in a few months. An acquaintance went recently and said nearly all of the vendors were gone. I really hope that's not the case. Anyone been recently (like this weekend or last)? Has it indeed changed, or moved, or is it the same? Does one evening/time of day have more vendors than another?
Thanks in advance. This was such a great LA eating experience, and I hope it remains so.
I'm still going tomorrow, but met DasUbergeek there tonight to grab a nibble on the way to another great meal.
Everybody was there, no worries. What happened last weekend was that Officer F$@&$@ from the Hollenbeck station single-handedly drove everybody away. In general now that the street food dragnet has ended most cops leave Breed St. alone, except this jerk.
Waiting for DU, I arrived early to an empty parking lot with about 7 beat up cargo vans, which was the scene about 6:45PM. At 7 on the dot, everyone started to disembark with staff and equipment like a military operation. By 7:15 most every stand was up and running.
I had a taco of birria de res(beef birria)from La Jarocha.Delicious.I was eyeing her alambre, cheese, steak, and bacon taco, but still had to go to dinner. Next time. DU brought me a taco of barbacoa from the, well, barbacoa stand.
I'll let him talk about his experience as a first time Breed Streeter.
It was fun watching the set up. I wish they'd just let them cook, so disturbing. They aren't going anywhere for now, they'll continue to be harrassed, but will return.
Anyways, tomorrow I think I'm hitting those enchiladas up.
