EthansTacos (4 of 8)

Just a month into opening his taco truck business, Carlos Vazquez of Ethans Tacos in La Puente has already gotten buzz on social media focusing on one of their menu items-- the fried empanada taco. The standout item is basically an empanada in taco form that is hand-rolled with your choice of meat and then fried to perfect level of crispiness, then topped with lettuce, Mexican crema, and a dash of goat cheese. This brief description does not really do it justice-- you need to just try one and judge for yourself.

The sope shell is also made by hand and fried with your choice of meat. I choose al pastor and it is mixed with potatoes & beans with mexican creama and goat cheese again sprinkled on top. The shell is soft with a slight crunch. The meat mixed with all that goodness is a delightful departure from your traditional sope.
