Indeed. And I've bookmarked that page for future food-hunting.

Even in a big city, it's sometimes a small world.

From that site:

"The road to taco bliss is paved with good intentions. I opened up my big
mouth and declared tacos zorro the king of the valley. This contention was
challenged by someone who goes by the name of "the taco duder". I
recieved the cryptic note via email " car wash - vineland and vanowen-
tacos la fonda for the best tacos in the valley, not tacos zorro"

"So I took up the challenge and rolled into east valley searching for the
famed tacos la fonda."

- http://tacohunt.blogspot.com/2006/09...-la-fonda.html

That location (Tacos la Fonda is a roach coach) is directly across the
street from my usual BBQ joint. And I was there just yesterday for
a baby back ribs and links combo plate with beans and potato
salad. All tables at the Q joint have a nice view of the end of the car
wash where the cars roll out to be toweled off.

The next one I looked at on that page is not only near me but on my
way to my favorite computer store -- I've probably driven by it hundreds
of times over the years. A comment mentions their good breakfast
burritos, and Blinky loves breakfast burritos.

Thanks again for the link. Mmmmmmmmm!

I don't have a favorite Roach Coach, as a careful rereading of my post
will demonstrate. Watch for quotation marks. But yes, I'll be trying
that one; it's good to see it recommended in a second place. Thanks for
the link.

Haven't been on a taco crawl in ever so long. We have Alberto's out here on
the east side. I have yet to have better fish tacos. And their taquitos
are to die for. They have all kinds of Horchata flavors that they make
themselves. In fact considering the neighborhoods some of them are in, to
die for is not such an unlikely possibility. But the danger does add a lot
to the experience.

My God-mother lived in Torrance. She's probably buried there too.

San Fernando Valley, far too inconvenient a drive from Torrance.
Instead, scout out the stands and trucks in your surrounding
neighborhood. It's a continuing adventure for angelenos. Note the
places that have the longest lines at lunch and the most people
hanging around late at night. When you decide which one to try, say
"What's especially good today?" with a smile. -aem

And then there's wannabees, like PENMART (which is really short for
"PENis MART".

I thought you were asking about all those restaurnts on the list.

Still: Mapquest or something will give you routing and you can print out
the directions/maps for easy driving.

Those two aren't far from Hollywood/ThaiTown. Just north of Hollywood, on
the other side of the Hollywood Hills is the area where those two taco
sources are.
