Jonathan Gold's 101 best in LA - Guerrilla Tacos (#31)

http://ballots.latimes.com/lists/101-best-restaurants-jonathan-gold/

Sat & Sunday venue is Blacktop Coffee 826 E 3rd St, Downtown LA Arts District

"An Alain Ducasse disciple quitting his job at an haute cuisine pop-up to serve charred octopus tacos on a downtown street corner? It happens. So while you can approach Wes Avila's Guerrilla Tacos as you would any other truck, making a lunch of an overstuffed taco and a bottle of Mexican pop, the tacos you get at Guerrilla, which parks outside a downtown coffee bar a few days a week, are pretty much the ones he decides to sell you, which are as likely to be stuffed with diver scallops, Tuscan kale or even French black truffles as they are to be heaped with shrimp or carnitas — carnitas Avila makes by slow-roasting Cook Pig Ranch pork shoulder. His biggest fans know to get there early: The lamb shoulder or sea urchin you've been craving may be sold out within minutes."

    Hi Peni, I got a great shot of her when I was taking a photo of the coffee shop.

    Thank you Dale. Not only were the tacos great,
    but I love being in that whole atmosphere. It is such a
    change of pace from our suburban setting .

    Sounds "Yum?" Will miss seeing this great group tomorrow, but I'm (obsessively) getting "stuff" ready for my first-ever cruise, so won't be going. Really do enjoy this group! Best of luck on your exam, Michael!
