Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

Los Angeles is a city where endless possibilities await. And, if you’re doing it right, they usually end up involving a taco truck at some point.

That’s basically the gist of this new e-book The Taco Diaries, which acts a sort of choose your own adventure series for LA. You start at one of a handful of the city’s best taco trucks, then plan your night accordingly from there based on a series of suggested second steps that follow. Choose a new path each time to find your way from truck to bar to beyond.

Better still, each option lets readers trace a built-in narrative along the way. The path follows a few friends in a story arc, with readers diving into new parts of their philosophical conversations as they go.

It’s not just a storytelling app with a side of tacos, though. The Taco Diaries is the work of one Jay Nunn, and it also comes with photos, key details like location and timing and all that stuff, plus some killer artwork and calligraphy from Susan Chen.

Want to check out The Taco Diaries and plan your next adventure now? You can snag your own copy from the iOS app store for $4.99.
