Tacos El Gallito ~ Culver City

"the suadero beef and carne asada with the smoky salsa is better than anything else you can get from taco trucks on the Westside"

The Westside taco truck landscape got a little more interesting with the arrival of Tacos El Gallito at the corner of La Cienega and Venice Blvd. Many know of Tacos El Gallito as the other truck that parks on Fair Oaks Blvd in Pasadena a couple blocks from El Taquito Mexicano.

The taco truck fare is seriously lacking the further west you head on Venice Blvd and there isn't much truck activity until you get a couple miles east of La Cienega . The Garcia Bros truck across the street can always be counted on for their spicy salsa verde but I've always thought the actual tacos were too inconsistent.
