You might have seen the Pink Taco Truck L.A.
around town at various events.
Not your typical taco truck,
using local and farm-fresh ingredients.
I was invited to the media preview
at the Pink Taco restaurant on Sunset Blvd
in West Hollywood.
They had their taco truck parked outside.
aka "The L.A. Woman"
You probably remember the song,
"L.A. Woman" by the Doors.
Did I just show my age???
on the 32" monitor
at the back of the truck
With a lot of goodies to try,
and since I'm a taco guy,
it had to be a taco order.
While waiting for my order,
I got to sample the Watermelon aqua fresca.
I'm ready to eat now.

My tacos were ready,
so it was time to go inside the restaurant
and try some Pink Taco Truck tacos.
(Top) Brisket Taco
(Middle) Al Pastor Taco
(Bottom) Pink Taco (chicken)
The Pink Taco restaurant
had a table waiting for us
and was nice enough to let us
sample 3 of their popular cocktails and margarita too.
With a marinated pork shoulder, onion, cilantro,
pineapple, and serrano salsa on a corn tortilla.
If you follow me, you know I love al pastor tacos.
This was a good one, loved the diced pineapples
with just enough heat.
Baja Shrimp Taco
A good amount of marinated shrimp, cabbage slaw,
chipotle mayo, avocado, and pico de gallo on a corn tortilla.
My favorite taco of the night
was "The Ape"
with sweet potato 3 ways, cactus salsa,
and cotija cheese on a corn tortilla.
Cocteles & Margaritas
(Left) Paloma: Herradura Blanco, fresh grapefruit
(Top) El Jefe: Pink Taco's signature Patrón Reposado barrel select,
Patrón Citronage, vanilla bean infused sweet & sour
(Bottom Right) Avocado Chile Margarita: Casamigos Blanco,
served with a chili lime salted rim
Yup, that's what I said.
"The L.A. Woman"
Look for the truck at various events
in and around Southern California.
OR have them cater your next event!
Their tacos are top notch
and service is friendly.
Next time, I want to try the street corn
and the brisket burrito.
NOTE: I was an invited guest of the Pink Taco Truck L.A.
I thank them for their invitation and hospitality.
