Okay, so you don’t go to El Michoacano for the ambience. You don’t go for the location. You don’t go if you can’t read Spanish. You go because they make the best taco in LA…hands or manos down.
On the corner of Lankershim Blvd and Sherman Way, it’s in the very of depths of The Valley. True it’s not the garden spot of Los Angeles, and yes, it’s surrounded by auto repair shops, strip clubs and a 98 Cent store, but all this is why the place rocks!
I always get two carnitas tacos and a Diet Coke I pay……..$4.00! Yep. The best taco in LA will only set you back $1.50 each.
I am in the middle of moving my household and in the midst of all the chaos I was in desperate need of some comfort food. Being from LA, that means only one thing to me. Mexican food! So on a scorching hot summer day, I made my way over to the little shack on the corner. There is nothing better than sitting in my air conditioned Prius, towel draped over my lap, listening to music and eating my cheap tacos. Ahh..life is good in the city.
