Wes Avila's Guerrilla Tacos truck boasts a constantly rotating menu of inventive tacos that play more like a sub-$20 tasting menu than a workaday taqueria. It's earned the former chef de cuisine of Le Comptoir endless fans as a result. Ever-changing options might lean toward wild boar one day and uni the next, with Avila himself as the unifying theme. Carrying effortless style and endless creativity, the fine-dining chef turned street-food impresario mirrors his tacos in colorfulness and quality, while constantly changing the battle lines of what it means to serve street food in L.A. Guerrilla tacos, indeed.
