The Tacos Cuernavaca truck sets up nightly on the edge of the taco mecca that is East LA, serving up street food Morales style. The cecina tacos here feature a thin sheet of excellent cured beef topped with onions and a chile de arbol salsa that tastes as bright as its color—these $2 treats are street tacos at their best. There are other tasty options, too, and for the truly hungry there is the alambre ilegal—a huge pile of greasy goodness (meats, cheese, peppers and onions, and pretty much anything else you can imagine), topped with lobster tails and accompanied by corn tortillas for taco assembling. Not just a taco truck, the extensive menu here includes delicious picaditas, tlacoyos and huaraches. We’ll have one of everything.

The cecino tacos are Cuernavaca were a mind opening experience for me. I was floored at how delicious and flavorful they are. Be sure to explore the rest of the menu too, everything we tried was phenomenal. This could easily become your new favorite late night truck.
