Asher recently popped by Rosita's Al Pastor, the East Riverside standby for β€” what else? β€” 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 β€” 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.

πŸ† Pro tip: To drink, grab a melΓ³n agua fresca β€” refreshing and just on this side of not-too-sweet.
