Time Out says

Run by Melva Pérez and her family, this East L.A. taco truck specializes in Mexicali-style guisados—saucy, ultra-tender braises and stews (as well as the name of the popular citywide taco chain). Only available from 8am to 1pm, Asadero Chikali’s breakfast-ish tacos come on handmade flour tortillas stuffed with the likes of steak and potatoes, chicharrónes in red salsa, spicy chorizo with scrambled eggs and other mouthwatering varieties. Come in the afternoon, and you’ll find those same paper-thin tortillas used in classic carne asada and chorizo tacos. If you arrive too late for the guisados, grab one of the vampiros as well—the grilled asada particularly lends itself to the crisp corn tortilla and oodles of melted cheese.
