Tripas Taco at Gloria's: So Good!

I am not a big fan of tripe in anything; however, I had a taste of the most delicious little fried tripe rounds in a taco at Gloria's in Huntington Park yesterday. The little tripas were like mini fried chicharron, so delicious that I'm still thinking about it today. Also, so cheap! The fresh shrimp ceviche tostada and the micheladas (made with Clamato and your choice of Mexican beer) aren't bad either. This is an authentic Mexican bar/restaurant, with low prices and good food and drink.
Any recs for other places in Pasadena or nearby that sell fried tripas in a taco with good salsa and good micheladas for these hot summer days? I may need another one soon.

Can't recommend any specific place for the tacos de tripas but just wanted to let you know that I believe what you are referring to is not tripe. They are the milk tubes for want of a better word. Full name is tripas de leche and they are delicious when fried crisp and put into a corn tortilla. You'll probably find them at most authentic taco stands that specialize in tacos. I used to get them at a stand on Garvey just east of Rosemead but I don't know if it is still there.
