During one lazy summer night when lil' sis's best friend was over and I think one or two of my girl cousins (I don't even remember which ones!), we did a late night taco run. My family's preferred restaurant for Mexican tacos and nachos is Carnitas Michoacan - Los Angeles (Lincoln Heights), but on this particular night, we decided to go somewhere I hadn't blogged yet.
King Taco Restaurants is a Southern California chain of fast food Mexican restaurants. Definitely not fine dining, but good for late night nachos, tacos, burritos, and tamales cravings.
And we were kinda craving a lot that night.
Nachos with cheese $4.50. The meat was more finely chopped and not as plentiful as Carnitas Michoacan.
All tacos were $1.25 each. Chicken and suadero (brisket). This cut of beef was a bit dry.
And our favorite cut, Carne Asada (Mexican Grilled Meat).
Tamales were $1.50 each.
Not too bad and decent enough, but since Carnitas Michoacan is about the same distance and their nachos are way better, it still remains my favorite for late night Mexican food runs.

1 year ago today, green (dill) eggs and no ham.
2 years ago today, my carne asada (Mexican grilled meat) recipe seems to have a long list of marinade ingredients, but it's so worth it.
