Date Night Taco Trucking in the Eastside

La Estrella taco truck in Eagle Rock

So I know what you’re thinking. Two back-to-back food posts? Damn, this girl likes to eat. Yup, this girl certainly does. Yesterday night, I gave my beloved the option to have a traditional, romantic date night or a fun, romantic date night. He opted for the fun one–and nothing spells fun and romantic quite like taco truck hopping through the upper Eastside!

Carne asada trio

We’re incredibly lucky to live within a 2 mile radius of 7 highly reviewed taco trucks/joints. Just like traveling together to India, tonight’s Taco Trucking will be a journey we’ll share together. Agra may have the Taj Mahal, but we have Taco Azteca!
Important Tips: 1) Bring cash. 2) Don’t use up precious real estate by drinking too many liquids between stops. 3) Don’t get gluttonous. To prevent tapping out by truck #3, share 1-2 tacos max per stop. Happy hopping!
Taco truck hopping + date night = romance
