Yes, there’s a dependable street taco stand in Little Tokyo. It’s at the very edge of the neighborhood, at the corner of Alameda and E. 4th Street, set up in a mostly empty parking lot. There’s not a lot here, other than a taco and burrito station and a trompo for roasting al pastor. But it’s open late (there are no official hours, but we’ve stopped by as late as 11pm) and there’s lots of room to stand around, either after a concert or before a night out. We prefer to supersize things and get the burrito filled with carnitas, paired with a giant cup of horchata or jamaica agua fresca.
