With about a dozen King Tacos in L.A. (and some on the outskirts), you're bound to run into one in your travels. So it's good to know that you are never far from a reliable tamale. King Taco does the basics -- chicken, pork, cheese with jalapenos, or sweet (sugar and pineapple pieces). It also lists calorie counts on the menu, in a font so small you need to squint to see it. Which is probably OK.
