That health department shutter didn't stop tireless taco trader Ricky Piña from serving his authentic Ensenada-style fish and shrimp tacos for long. Piña has been operating from a stand in the parking lot of LAX-C, the massive Thai version of Costco in the northern throes of Chinatown. Eater gets word today that Ricky's Fish Tacos will soon be roving around the city in a legitimate taco truck, a sure boon to those unwilling to travel to the isolated, industrial part of Downtown.
At the moment, Ricky's is still serving on the weekends in Chinatown, but Piña is in the process of outfitting a standard food truck to reach more parts of the city. It's unclear if the vehicle will be stationary at an ideal Eastside location (like the spot on North Virgil where he remained for months) or if it will travel around like other food trucks often do. More to come. [Eaterwire]
