Proud winners of the LA Taco Contest for Best Taco in LA. Literally, the best single taco. Not the best taco restaurant, but the best actual taco.
Of course I was intrigued! Thank you LA Taco for continuing to highlight all the amazing taco places we have in Los Angeles!!!!
I have to say I fell in love with Sonoratown from the minute I walked into the teenie tiny box of a taco waiting room.
The adorable server was so friendly and delightful, completely unruffled by the line that formed behind me and out the door, like a magic trick.
She answered all my questions - even my disbelief that the best taco in LA was only $2!!!!! That's right, $2!!!!!!!! Wait, this little, simple, carne asada taco? This street taco? Really?
It was so good, I would eat it totally plain. Just meat and the fresh, soft and tasty homemade flour tortilla. The only corn tortillas they serve are fried (for the Tostada.) RIGHT ON!
I ordered several things. Everything was delicious. Fresh, flavorful, nice spice, simply, just, delicious.
It was a unanimous agreement in our group that the humble $2 taco was the best and most addictive thing on the menu. I'm thinking I can eat 6 next time, no problem. Not because they're small, just because they are so stimulating to the taste buds.
Similar to the style of Mexicali Taco, the grill magic hails from Sonora itself. Is it the spice? The wood? The smoke? The marinade? The cut of meat? All of that and it's all that, people.
Run, hop, skip, jump, fly to 208 E. 8th Street, between the hours of 11-4, 6 days a week. They are closed Sunday.
Order at least 5 of those tacos. Just because.
