The Official Recession has enveloped us for sixteen official months. It’s still no reason we can’t enjoy life. This is LA -- we have a ton of inexpensive options! A Recession Obsession is truly fantastic, regardless of whether times are good or you've recently been downsized. We last obsessed over Phillippe's old school french dip sandwiches, and some ramen on the West Side. Today, we obsess...

The dirty little secret about our city’s taco trucks is that they ruin brick-and-mortar eateries.

Bursting with flavor and personality, tacos at SoCal taco trucks run about $1-$1.25/each. That makes eating a $2-$3 taco indoors pain one's brain and wallet slightly. That is, unless something adds to the value and stretches your dollar.

West LA's Tacomiendo found a way to pack value into their $2-$3/each tacos. But, unfortunately, it's not with titillating entertainment (they don't serve silicone on the side -- though if anyone knows a place that offers such fare please write LAist asap,) it's with quantity. That's why they're LAist's latest Recession Obsession.
