I was driving east on Washington, going home from the beach. I don’t know why I was on Washington, not on Venice. Maybe to avoid traffic, or maybe it was fate. As I passed the 405 to avoid traffic, I saw a sign that read, Tito’s Tacos. Hearing much about this place, I had to see what all the fuss was about.
Sadly knowing it was cash only, I had to scramble for some dollars and change. I felt like I was back in high school looking for some extra food money. Sad that I could not get a burrito, I could only afford one taco, with cheese of course. For 2 bucks and change, it was a full on meal!
The shredded cheese on the taco is a must. The hard taco shell isn’t greasy as I thought it would be. It was fresh, crispy, and crunchy. Delicious. The shredded beef was tender and juicy, not dry at all. The best part is the cold salsa. What looks to be just some pureed tomatoes was perfect on the taco. It gave it that cool factor, and it tasted so fresh. The complimentary tortilla chips was great too.
Honestly, this is a cool spot. At first, I thought it would be kind of greasy and unrefined. I was surprised to taste the freshness and cleanness of the ingredients. It was a nice break from the soft tacos we see so much in LA. (King Taco) or (Cactus) Next time, I will bring cash, and cash only. That way, I can have all the crunchy tacos I want.
