New Kosher Taco Truck in L.A.
Just came across a new kosher TAKOSHER truck today. Hubby and I stopped. I picked up two tacos, one brisket, and one carne la beef. The brisket taco is sweet, it is cooked with chili sauce raisins, sauerkraut. Neither one of us cared for it because it was too sweet. The carne la beef, was okay, it had a red sauce on it. Sad to say we weren't impressed.
When we stopped we thought it was the original kosher tacos that is on Pico and Doheny, but it wasn't. Today was their first day.
I hope that it suceeds, but I would change the format and have good grilled meat with some pico de gallo, different hot sauces, onions and cilantro, etc., like they have on a regular taco truck. They do have a couple of other tacos which we didn't try.

I came across the Takosher truck yesterday, it was parked right next to Trader Joe's at 3rd and La Brea so it worked out perfectly as I was leaving the store.
As for the food, I tried the brisket, the beef and the latka taco. Granted, the brisket had a sweetness to it, but hey...it was good! The beef with the red sauce was my favorite...just had a really good taste to it. What surprised me was the Latka taco...never had one of those before so ended up getting one for the road.
It was fast, it was tasty - nicely done!
I'm glad you liked it. I thought it was too sweet.... I was hoping for something more authentic, with pico de gallo, cilantro, onion, limes, etc. The beef taco just had some red sauce on it which was sort of generic.
I hope that if they keep this menu at least incorporate some authentic mexican food, rather than their jewish version. I think that they are doing a diservice to the kosher community by not serving the authentic food.
I haven't tried this very new truck, and unless they go south of I-10 I'm not likely to cross their path any time soon.
Sounds like they need a milder, savory sauce for the brisket. Maybe they can check out what Bar-B-Kosher downtown serves. Chipotle and guajillo chile would be a good start.
Is there any reason in the Kashrut why the brisket can't be smoked?
