D and I are constantly reminded to check out Kike's Tacos everytime we pass by this make-shift parking lot taqueria on our way home from Little Tokyo. Kike's Tacos is located on the corner of Beaudry and 2nd Street which lies at the footsteps of LA's beautiful downtown skyline. The amazing view, Kike's picnic table setup, a complete salsa bar, a constant hungry taco crowd, and $1 tacos delivers nothing but romantic evenings for hungry taco monsters.
After a long week at work with my kids and his long week at work with ads, D and I finally decided to make a date with Kike's. At the last minute, Rameniac and his wife joined us for our Friday night taco date.
The tacos over at Kike's are ok, good enough to enjoy with our free nightscape. I ended up ordering an asada, pastor, and chorizo taco. My asada was the best out of the three with it's simple cuts of nicely marinated asada over a freshly toasted tortilla. My al pastor was a bit to cinammon"y" for me. I actually don't remember much of my pastor taco. The chorizo was far from what I was expecting in a taco. Kike uses regular breakfast links for their chorizo and although it wasn't bad, it just wasn't what I was expecting.
Kike's Tacos has a great taco scene. Hope for a spot at their one table. Or eat on the hood of your car. Wherever you eat, enjoy LA taco nights. In my opinion, they're simply the best way to enjoy Los Angeles.

*I forgot to ask what time Kike's is out there on the corner parking lot. But from what I remember, it seems like a 8pm-2am nighttime joint.
