I’m visiting LA for about a week, and for the first stop in this trip, I had some tacos at Tire Shop Taqueria for a very late lunch. Thanks to @A5Kobe @JeetKuneBao and @Sgee for the very enthusiastic recommendations, and also @Chowseeker1999 who covered it in their extensive taco thread. Tire Shop is in a small lot and is a couple of tents with some griddles, a charcoal grill, and a selection of agua frescas. There was a decently sized line when I got there but it moved quickly. I had dinner in about 4 hours so I just got a chorizo and carne asada taco for a snack. And both were excellent. As you can see from the pictures the tortillas are hand made (very efficiently btw) in the griddle in front. The chorizo are actual little sausages off the grill that are chopped up, which gave them some nice crispy bits from the skin. The carne asada was sliced thin, tender and juicy. Both meats had a nice smoky flavor from the charcoal grill. The corn tortillas were also quite good and had a good corny(?) flavor. Each taco was dressed simply with cilantro, raw chopped onion, and some guacamole. Good stuff.
Tacos ($2.25 each) - carne asada on the left, chorizo on the right. There’s also some salsa and a packet of radishes and limes.
