21 Tacos We Really Love in Los Angeles

Fried Camarones from Mariscos Jalisco Truck (Los Angeles, CA)

The deep-fried crunchy pockets that come out of this brightly painted truck are a two-handed affair. After the initial crunch from the miraculously ungreasy shell, the whole thing gives way to a moist-crunchy-rich mass of fried shrimp topped with creamy slices of avocado and a bright, tomato-based salsa.

There are so many great tacos in Los Angeles, where do we even begin. Chorizo, carnitas, and carne asada reign supreme, but the more unusual buche (pork stomach) does manage to hold a special place in our hearts (er, stomachs).
