Because my (Mexican Food Expert) friend @StreetGourmetLA says so!
“Tacos Leo, located in the Union 76 parking lot at La Brea Bl. and Venice Bl. is an authentic representation of al pastor in Los Angeles, and the only one I’ve encountered that has a true specialist.” ~ Bill Esparza (aka “Street Gourmet L.A.”)
Peter and I are now Tacos Leo regulars!
Tacos Leo’s marinated & stacked pork on the trompo (aka spit).
Al pastor literally means “shepherd’s-style tacos”.
Fresh, juicy pineapple is sliced onto the shaved pork before serving…
Now we are ready for the condiment station… but these taste great on their own too.
Choose from salsa roja, salsa verde, radishes, cilantro, pickled vegetables, jalapenos & more…
Yes… that’s right… only $1 each!
“These tacos are the real deal, and the first tacos al pastor in Los Angeles that warrant a special trip.” ~ Bill Esparza (Read all about authentic al pastor at Bill’s blog, Street Gourmet L.A.)
Photos of many adventures with Bill (Street Gourmet L.A.)
Tacos Leo shared with (so far) Peter, Julie, Hanh, Brent, Remil, Greg, Lindsay & of course Bill!
Located at Venice & La Brea Blvd.
Look for the 76 Gas Station Sign!
Note: Try to come on Fri, Sat or Sun when the trompo (aka spit) is out of the truck!
