The trailer La Tunita 512 serves bright-red beef birria, a style of taco originally from Tijuana that’s also popped up all over LA and San Francisco. La Tunita’s is outstanding, and you should also order the consomé, a chili and lime-infused beef broth for sipping and dunking the birria. All the tacos at La Tunita use handmade corn tortillas, which are so good you’ll be thinking about them for the rest of the day. Even the day after. Check their Instagram for hours that sometimes change.
