Time Out says

Some of the best tacos in L.A. have landed in Silver Lake. El Ruso, the Sonora-style taco destination in Boyle Heights, recently took over the former Goods Mart space—located just next to All Day Baby and across the street from Spoon & Pork and Playita Mariscos—and opened a mobile outpost, with more on the way.

You can find taquero Walter Soto and his team crafting fresh, handmade flour tortillas; char-grilled meats; packed-full sobaqueras; and flavorful braises out of a trailer at the front of the parking lot, and there's a plan for indoor seating soon to follow. Want more good news? Soto and his talented team hope to expand their operation even further in the future. Just be sure to stop by the latest outpost earlier than later, as the El Ruso team regularly sells out in Silver Lake as it reaches evening hours.
