Mariscos Jalisco’s New Westside Truck: What You Need To Know
Everything you need to know about Mariscos Jalisco’s new, permanent truck in West LA.
Written by

You probably know about Mariscos Jalisco - after all, this Boyle Heights truck is an LA icon, not to mention number one on our list of The Best Taco Spots In Los Angeles. And they’ve just announced they’ll be parking a truck in West LA permanently, bringing their absolutely tremendous tacos to a part of the city that has never had easy access before (the next closest Mariscos location is in Downtown LA).

WHERE IS IT?

The new truck will be on La Cienega between 18th and Sawyer St., just north of Venice Blvd., so it will save a lot of Westsiders a trip on the 10 just to get to their Eastside locations.

WHAT ARE THE HOURS?

They’re open Friday-Sunday, 10am-4pm, and unlike their other trucks, they accept credit cards.

what should i order?

Well, eventually, everything. But for your first visit, focus on these three things:

Tacos Dorados De Camaron

The taco that made Mariscos famous. Big chunks of fresh shrimp are folded inside an incredible white corn tortilla, deep-fried, doused in a cabbage-heavy tomato salsa, and topped with some avocado. Like we said - it’s the best taco in LA. Order a couple of them, and use the tiny half-limes on the side liberally.

Poseidon Tostada

The Poseidon is a spicy, salty, behemoth of a tostada. The lime-heavy fish, octopus, and shrimp ceviche perfectly balances out the smoky, deeply spicy aguachile on top. They’ll give you extra tostadas for this if you ask, which you should.

Peinados

People don’t talk about the oysters here as much as they should - these freshly shucked Bajas are topped with diced shrimp, octopus, cilantro, onion, and tomato, and they’re a tremendous way to end this meal. Top it with some of their house-bottled hot sauce, too
