Asher recently popped by Rosita's Al Pastor, the East Riverside standby for — what else? — some al pastor tacos.
Flashback: Rosa Juarez opened both a brick-and-mortar spot and the food truck out front more than 30 years ago.
On a Monday night, the special at the trailer is unbeatable — four al pastor tacos, succulent with chewy pork and juicy pineapple, for just $6.
He also grabbed a veggie torta overflowing with grilled bell peppers and onions, nopales, avocado and beans. It was tasty too, but when in Rome, stick with the al pastor.
- Rosita's is open 9am to midnight Sundays through Thursdays and 9am-3am on Fridays and Saturdays.
🏆 Pro tip: To drink, grab a melón agua fresca — refreshing and just on this side of not-too-sweet.
