One of our personal favorite street dishes is tacos and burritos "AL PASTOR". "Al pastor" is spit-grilled pork meat marinated with dried chilies, an array of spices and to add a pinch of sweetness, pineapple! It is very similar to shawarma, Turkish doner kebab and Greek gyros. This delicious meat style originated in central Mexico, where it was adopted from Lebanese immigrants.
It is tender. It is juicy. It should be something you try at least once.
One of the most delicious spots is luckily located near Jerry's Motel. If you make your way north and drive 2 minutes (or a 10 minute walk) to Glendale Blvd. and Temple Street, you will see an orange food truck called, LEO'S TACOS on your left in the parking lot of a local car wash. $5-6 per person will get you a sizable, affordable dinner. Make sure you try a few salsas to find the perfect one for you.
The truck is there starting at about 4pm till about 1am. See map below to get there.
