Among the late-night Hollywood set, there's a quiet war being waged on the streets. As you pile out of whatever expensive social experiment you spent the evening in, do you choose tacos or bacon-wrapped hot dogs?
Both are delicious, widely available and an essential source of Vitamin-Sober. But for all the consistent greasy goodness that a street dog provides, it is no match for the wondrous highs of a perfectly executed taco. Particularly if it's the birria taco from Cactus Taqueria on Vine.
On its bulging menu board, Cactus seems to carry the standard fare: burritos, quesadillas and tacos with your choice of meat. The add-ons (including avocado) and endless combinations make for a dizzying array of choices, though, so best to work your ordering like an episode of Pimp My Ride: choose your meat and preferred mode of transportation to your mouth, then bling that thing out with all the extras you could want.
