Why We Love LA: Taco Trucks + Sepulveda Pass

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

On Mulholland between Skirball Center Drive and North Casiano Rd. at the side of the road in the dirt, sits The Aranitas family taco truck. Yes, that's right, Bel Air has a taco truck too.

Among the Skirball and Getty museums, it feels unlikely to find a taco truck parked here at this thoroughfare between the Valley and the Basin. But with nearly 4,000 taco trucks in LA County*, it's all about location. And here, among the 405 arteries, we still had to wait 5 minutes in line for our food.
