My Favorite Taco ~ Fernando Valenzuela

3:58 PM PDT on September 17, 2012

Fernando Valenzuela ranks as one of L.A.'s all time most popular sports icons and did more to get the entire city behind the Dodgers than any other player ever has, or will. Everything about El Toro is awesome and speaks to what Los Angeles is all about, and we've long wanted to know his favorite taco spot. Today we got our chance, by sneaking in a question just ahead of today's Twitter #DodgerChat (thanks Yvonne!).

So, Fernando, what's your favorite taco?

Yuca's in Los Feliz.

Yuca's won the first-ever Taco Madness Tournament, so just like Fernando, they're champions! Thanks to the Dodgers and Fernando!
