The Surfer Taco Truck will take your tongue for a wild ride with unexpected killer spice in their big beefy Burritos and creamy, cool Fish Tacos – and yes they've got Lengua (Beef Tongue) too. While they won't be ridin' the 405 free-wave down to the 2010 U.S. Surf Open this weekend in HB, you can catch them paddling around Downtown LA.

Happy Food Truck Friday! I was super stoked to see a new truck in my hood, so I couldn't deny a try. My hand model and I, as always, split the following:
The Carne Asada Burrito – it's massive and comes neatly wrapped in a nicely toasted Flour Tortilla. Inside are the works – if you so choose – Pinto Beans, Shredduce (Shredded Lettuce), Rice, Salsa, Cilantro, and tender Carne Asada. Other than the few teensy fatty pieces found, the meat is really flavorful, unexpectly firey, and will make you say COWabunga (sorry, had to sprinkle in some cheese). The best part is the last bite, where all the juices come together then explode in your mouth.
The Fish Tacos – there's a generous whole Filet of Fish with some Cajun flavors goin' on and a spicy flare. My fish was perfectly tender, while my hand model said his was a little dry. But we both enjoyed the thickly sliced Cabbage, Chopped Tomato, and especially the Creamy Chipotle Sauce, which should be served on the side for extra dipping (or slathering).
In the truck's bucket are two squeezy tubes – one has Verde Sauce, which is way too watered down and not even worth it, and the other contains Roja Sauce which is so spicy, it seriously sent shivers up my lips and through my teeth.
The Tamarind Soda – it's such a treat, like a carbonated Arnold Palmer (Half Ice Tea, Half Lemonade) with a hint of nutty spice.
The Surfer Taco Truck uses real fresh Mexican ingredients – no lard & no cans. And they've actually been serving LA Tortas, Empanadas, Quesadillas, Camarones, Breakfast Burritos & more for several years now – they just probably upped their marketing ante with a new truck wrap and twitter page (@TheSurferTaco). They're available for Catering too at 213-265-5403.
Surf's and Bottom's Up, dude.
