Tacos Carillo Taco Truck on Mullholland and Beverly Glen

Sometimes the best part about a Taco Truck is the way you find it and when.

It was 8am. I was STARVING for a breakfast burrito and/or taco. I was late. I was taking a different route that caused me to come up Beverly Glen and turn left on Mullholland to get to Coldwater Canyon heading down into Beverly Hills.

I saw a truck. Two trucks. One had more people but didn't say the word 'TACO'. The other said  'Tacos Carillo'. A very attentive, kind woman took my order. I was very specific, which I always am but usually I'm ignored.

I wanted a burrito, but not too big, with rice, beans, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese and onions. I wasn't in the mood for meat or eggs. She nodded, wrote it all down, and charged me $3.50.

I also ordered some simple Chicken Tacos for a student I was going to see. He's 10 and doesn't like a lot of spice.

The burrito was PERFECT. The tortilla was so fresh and tender. It wasn't too big. It wasn't hard to eat with one hand while driving a stick shift. The tacos were clean and simple. Big chunks of white meat. He loved them. Sometimes kids are the best critics.

The also have oatmeal (avena) and instead of chips they give you cool mini tostadas. I can't wait to go back and try more. I'm still thinking about the perfection of the burrito as I write this!
