L.A. Weekly’s Tacolandia is back!
For the last three years, I’ve missed out on what could be the best damn food festival in the world. The food line-up would come out and I would plan my attack as if I was picking what bands to check out at Coachella. But it didn’t matter, something always came up and I had to opt out. Maybe next year, I’d think to myself. Well, this is the year!
L.A. Weekly’s Tacolandia is back at El Pueblo de Los Angeles on Saturday, June 17th. There’s no better setting for this event than the historic El Pueblo, which is the oldest section of Los Angeles. The great folks have put together what they are calling the best Tacolandia ever. With the perfect location and the long list of amazing restaurants on the bill, June 17th will be a day to remember.
Los Angeles has an infinite number of taquerias so I’m sure the staff at LA Weekly had their fill of tacos as they got to choose who to include in this year’s edition. By the way, LA Weekly if you ever need help, you know where to reach me. As I looked at the list, my eyes lit up and my mouth watered. There are so many restaurants that I’ve wanted to hit up. Watts’ very own Keith Garrett and his All Flavor No Grease team will be in attendance. If you’ve never heard of All Flavor No Grease, do yourself a favor and check his Instagram page. Olvera Street staple Cielito Lindo will be serving their famous taquitos and salsa verde. Home to some of the best Mariscos in all of LA, Coni’Seafood will bless us with their attendance. El Tepeyac, known for their monstrous Manuel Special, is on the list and maybe they’ll just have a Manny special and we can all share it. The list also includes sampling from Amor y Tacos, Birreria Jalisco, Broken Spanish, Carnitas El Momo, Casa Oaxaca, Casa Vega, Chicas Tacos, Dos Chinos, El Coraloense, Guerilla Tacos, Loteria Grill, Petty Cash, Sonoratown, VCHOS Pupuseria Moderna, White Boy Tacos, Yuca’s Tacos and many more.
