Border Grill, Venice CA

October 4, 2009

So the only reason why we came here was because it was literally right next to Lemonade. I have heard of these little taco trucks all over the web and after trying Kogi, we decided to hit this place up after our dinner for a dessert taco? If you really wanted to eat at these taco trucks, you would actually have to track them down through Facebook or Twitter since they go all over Los Angeles. The Border Grill Truck just so happened to be right next to Lemonade for the night. Don’t worry, their tacos are like two bites and we ended up splitting them, each taco was around $2.50-3. Since we only had two tiny tacos, I can’t give a full review on this place. Also, parking sucks in Venice so we figured since we aren’t around this area very often, we might as well knock out two places in one night. Border Grill seems to be a pretty popular spot, with lots of people lining up to order their food and waiting around. Since they don’t have any tables or anything, most people just eat right on the side of the streets. Classy right?

We ordered the Yucatan Pork Taco-braised achiote pork, black beans, picked onion, oragne jicama slaw on handmade tortilla and Carne Asada Taco-caramelized onion, salsa fresca, guacamole.

Overall, these tacos were meh. I think I was expecting something really unique like Kogi, where they fuse Korean flavors with Mexican for Asian tacos and burritos, but these tacos were just your standard mini tacos in a corn tortilla. I preferred the carne asada one over the pork because I didn’t like the orange slaw on the pork. I think also because I live in L.A., tacos are a staple here which is probably why my standards are a little higher when it comes to tacos. Overall, probably wouldn’t try to track down this truck anytime soon, but apparently they have an actual sit-down restaurant in Santa Monica that has good happy hours. I would definitely be up for checking out their happy hour next time I am in Santa Monica.
