Editor's note: It's about time we dedicate a whole column to tacos in Los Angeles, wouldn't ya say? That's where our man Farley Elliott comes in! He'll be eating from trucks and taquerias and reporting back on the carnitas, asada, lengua, and other tasty fillings out there in a tortilla. —The Mgmt.
The Eastside hill-hugging Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles is often referred to as "Taco Town." Within Highland Park, there's a taco truck hotspot called La Estrella. No, not the one in Eagle Rock or the one on Figueroa. We're talking about THE La Estrella, the dull white truck up on ramps that parks off the sidewalk at York and Ave 54. Yeah, THAT La Estrella.
Those enterprising folks have duplicated themselves across this side of town and printed out a few poor quality copies in the process. Thankfully, the true La Estrella remains one of the better taco trucks in all of Los Angeles. With a steady hand overseeing the meats, each one is largely able to shine in its own way.
