Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ All Flavor No Grease

10:43 AM PDT on March 26, 2018

[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]hough his tacos and burritos are equally as good, Keith Garrett is the undisputed quesadilla king of Los Angeles. Armed only with an Instagram account and a single propane grill in the driveway of his house on 108th Street in Watts, the God-loving street chef is one of dozens of young black entrepreneurs in South L.A. currently using social media and entrepreneurial savvy to build audiences and drive business to their culinary startups. Under the name All Flavor No Grease, Garrett built a cult-like following around his African-Americanized Mexican food, including tacos based on his mother’s recipe (ketchup, not salsa), burritos loaded with steak and lobster (surf and turf) and the Triple Threat quesadilla, a weighty combination of barbecue chicken, steak, and shrimp that’s given a zig-zag of sour cream and cilantro salsa before getting chopped into thick strips that ooze orange cheese like molten Earth. After years of fostering crowded, sold-out pop-ups, AFNG finally entered the food truck game. One is fully wrapped and roves around the region with usually two stops per day; the second is a plain lonchera that stays on the “Ocho” and serves locals, regulars and Postmates deliveries.
