To celebrate its five-year anniversary, Mariscos El Bigoton will be handing out free tacos and tostadas de ceviche from 2 p.m. to sellout at a block party on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at its 5458 Whittier Blvd. location in Commerce.

There will be free souvenirs and live music by Los de la Angelina at one of L.A. Weekly’s Best of the Eastside picks.

“It feels great to still be in business,” owner Edgar Sanchez, who hasn’t ruled out brick-and-mortar plans, tells L.A. Weekly. “I’ve got two trucks now and am getting a third one next week, which I hope to take to the Westside. Probably Santa Monica or Venice. I’m going to keep going as long as I can handle it on my own.”

Signature seafood favorites like the pastelaso towers, marispina pineapples and mariscos estilo maleficio will be available truckside as usual.
