Celebrity cookbook author Chrissy Teigen wasn’t able to leave the house last night for the Oscars so she decided to celebrate on her own terms: By ordering one of LA’s best taco trucks. Mariscos Jalisco, an Eater 38 essential restaurant, drove over to Teigen and husband John Legend’s home for a special evening delivery of crispy shrimp tacos and Jalisco-style tostadas.
Teigen actually tweeted yesterday that she was looking for “the truck featured in Ugly Delicious,” David Chang’s newly released Netflix show, which turned out to be Mariscos Jalisco. The six-month-old pregnant Teigen offered to give away her Oscars dress on Twitter too, explaining the reason why she opted to stay home rather than attend the annual awards show. Looks like Teigen made the smart choice: tacos over Oscars. Teigen even filmed the truck rolling into her driveway on Twitter.
Though Teigen and Legend did not attend the Academy Awards show, she did show up multiple times on the highly-viewed commercials, once for McDonald’s and another for Google Home. Last week, Eater reported that Mariscos Jalisco would be opening its first brick & mortar establishment in Pomona.
