Roadside Gourmet: Takosher
Los Angeles, Calif.
What to Order: The Original Brisketaco
What happens when Jewish cuisine meets California Mexican food? Takosher, that’s what: A kosher taco truck that takes the staples of a Jewish meal and wraps them in tortilla shells. The blue Mexi-Jew fusion mobile, emblazoned with the slogan “The Chosen Taco,” brings the joys of the L.A. taco truck to the kosher community. The menu is small, but packs a punch: It includes a deep-fried potato wonder called the Latketaco, which Takosher serves with a dash of apple jalapeno chutney, and the Brisketaco, slow-braised brisket marinated in chili sauce, raisins and sauerkraut, then sliced and topped with cilantro.
