Tacos de Camarones at Mariscos Jalisco in Boyle Heights

Please Make Note of Pleasure Palate Attendance Policies and our 3 Strikes Rule by clicking here before RSVP-ing to this Event. Cancelling your RSVP within 24 hours or not showing up at the event without contacting the Organizer ahead of time will result in a strike. 3 Strikes and You're Out! 

You probably heard about this little taco truck that walked away with the grand prize at the first Street Food Festival at the Rose Bowl a couple of years ago.  Since then they have won a couple of other festival prizes and have now added a second truck and opened a restaurant.  Our good friend of Pleasure Palate, Chuy Tovar, is arranging a special dinner for us here.

We will dine-in at their small new place in Boyle Heights (NOT outdoors at the truck) where we will enjoy a family-style dinner comprised of tacos, ceviche and aquachiles.  All included for $9 per person + tax and tip.  For those who wish to BYOB, they will mix free micheladas with your beer.  Soft drinks will also be available for purchase. 

Take a look at what they have to say in L.A. Weekly's Essential 99 about Mariscos Jalisco:

"There is a sea of mariscos trucks in East L.A., but the one that will remain wedged in your memory for years to come is Raul Ortega's Mariscos Jalisco taco truck. What you come here for — along with folks from as far away as San Diego — is the taco dorado de camarones, a hefty taco stuffed with shrimp, then deep-fried and topped with fresh salsa and a generous slice or two of avocado. That salsa will skirt dangerously around the paper plate as you settle down along the nearby brick ledge that serves as customer seating. But any splatter is worth that spectacular first bite, when the crispy, clean crunch of the tortilla meets the meatiness of the shrimp. Ortega has been frying up these gems for more than a decade now, starting out back when half the kids tweeting in line were barely in high school. Don't judge: You'll likely find yourself tweeting something, too. Something like "best taco in L.A."

    Not on Sunday!!! :(
    They look delicious. The only time I went out with Cecilia was to Corazon y Miel, remember? I LOVED all the food and place... I went ahead and wrote down the address to try them on my own one of these days that I drive to LA... I probably would have gone if it was any other day... Have FUN!!! :)

    I live in the area and eat their yummy tacos. I'd join but I'll be out of town. Enjoy! I'm not sure if they are open till 3 on Sundays but if they are stop by La Mascota on Whittier Blvd and get some tamales.
