When, earlier this year, L.A. County moved to restrict the vehicles, all infierno broke loose. “In L.A., taco trucks are where people meet up,” says Aaron Sonderleiter, who with his buddy Chris Rutherford started the popular saveourtacotrucks.org (its call to arms: “Carne Asada is not a Crime”).
Sonderleiter’s favorite entrée? Carnitas at La Estrella at York and Avenue 54 in Highland Park. (“Amazing red chile sauce.”)
