Rate-A-Restaurant #396: Evil Cooks LA (El Sereno)

Restaurant: Evil Cooks

Location: 2461 N Eastern Ave. (El Sereno)

Type of restaurant: Tacos

We stipulated: Maria and I continue "New Food Sundays," inspired by the Los Angeles Times' latest 101 Restaurants special issue. Evil Cooks' weekend pop up taco stand sounded amazing, and El Sereno isn't that far away.

They stipulated: Open only Friday through Sunday evenings, in front of a house on busy Eastern Ave. Also: "our specialty is street gourmet tacos such as Black Al Pastor and much more. Lets no forget out Dessert Tacos such as our famous Flan Taco, Chocoflan taco, Arroz con leche taco, Camote con leche taco and much more."
What we ordered: Maria got the Prince of Darkness burrito: Black pastor, onion, cilantro, salsa roja, cheese, eggs, guac ($8). I got the three tacos: black pastor, chorizo verde, chicken pibil ($8).

High point: 
Whatta deal! These tacos, with the homemade tortillas, wonderfully prepared meats and right amount of condiments, were perfection.

Low point:  They had already sold out of their desserts, so we couldn't try the la bruja (flan taco) like we had hoped.

Overall impression:
An amazing deal, and well worth the drive and even waiting in line. Best tacos I've had in recent memory.

Will we return:  Yes Yes Yes!
