Wishing everyone Happy Chowing as the summer (well in the Northern Hemisphere, anyways) rolls on. Busy these days at work, which equates to me doing more takeout than dining out…
Operating out of a small, plain stand next to a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Tacos Andino (West L.A.) offers their lucky customers magnificent carnitas, carne asada and pollo tacos, perfectly paired with their avocado sauce and onion salsa. Though humble in appearance, these fragrant homemade, corn tortilla-covered sensations pack huge bites! #RespectTheTaco#HugeBites#GloryWrappedInAluminumFoil
Taqueria el compita at pch and the 110 in lomita. Doing tacos al carbon tijuana style. Not as good as tire shop but I feel like very few al carbon places are. Still pretty good got both chorizo and asada, hand made tortillas.
There’s also about 10 other vendors in the parking lot including churros, a pastor and sombrero pot taquero and others. If you’re in the South Bay it’ll scratch that taco itch.
watermelon kakigori, housemade watermelon syrup, condensed milk mix, lime cream and kuramoto ice from kanazawa japan
I’m glad kakigori is a thing now in la. this version was delicious, loved the lime cream on top. up there with some of the best I’ve had at majordomo. get it at katsu sando and a bang bang with prd would be perfect. @Hungrydrunk
the only problem is there’s no where to sit and eat the damn thing on premises, da fuk? you either have to stand outside on the sidewalk or frogger it across the street to far east plaza and hope you don’t spill it or it doesn’t melt too much. katsu sando if you’re doing kakigori you should really consider setting up some small tables outside, c’mon man.
We might’ve just missed each other. Loved the kakigori.
Perfect amount of sweetness to me. Lime cream complemented the really well. And the syrup tasted just like watermelon juice without losing any freshness. As a bonus, you basically get a nice slushy on the bottom with watermelon balls and half melted shaved ice.
Nanbankan West LA - I can’t believe I didn’t discover this place sooner. I no longer have to drive all the way down to Torrance to get my yakitori fix. Great food & service - have already gone back and can’t wait to go back again.
