We were recommended to go to their restaurant so when we came across the food truck at the Abbot Kinney Festival, we jumped in the long queue and it was SO worth it. Try the short rib tacos.

Spicy pork burrito and tacos are really great. The sauce inside the burrito is very delicious and they can even put more of it inside:)
