Just when you thought tacos weren't "sexi" enough.
This made me spit out my water when driving down Whittier Blvd. It was a hot day and we were on route for some refreshing raspados(mexican shaved ice) and it wasn't a taco day but who can say no to el guero sexi?
So me and my lady friend walked up to the truck and peered in. Inside the truck were two mexican dudes, one at the grill and the other taking the orders.
"Where's the guero" she said
"shh that's rude" I told her
"I don't see a guero in there."
I ordered two tacos, one asada, one al pastor.
With still no guero in sight my tacos came through the small pick up window. I dressed them with salsa roja, onions and cilantro from the makeshift salsa bar inside one of the truck compartments.
The tacos were devoured in short time and were actually much better tasting than they looked. The salsa roja especially left me with a stinging sensation for the next 20 minutes making the raspado all the more refreshing.
When I have more time I think I will have to try some of that birria de chivo and find out more about this el guero sexi. Actually, I'll stick to the birria.
