El Chato, on the corner of Olympic and La Brea, is renown for its confluence of preparation and execution, where perfect pastor marinade meets the expert hands of those manning the plancha. Their smoky chipotle is a dream, the sort of thick, hearty, heat-filled concoction that — if bottled — would make people forget the name sriracha. And when the al pastor and all that salsa combine under the drape of melted mozzarella cheese inside a crispy-at-the-edges quesadilla, there is no better late night flavor to be had from a taco truck in all of Los Angeles.
