El Ojo de Agua Wins Again

Posted by David Boyk on December 27, 2008

My girlfriend and I drove down to LA from the Bay Area on Highway 101 last week, and naturally swung by El Ojo de Agua, probably the best truck, on the way out of Oakland. The chicken tacos were, as always, supreme, and about a thousand times better than the bland fish tacos we got at the Splash Cafe, in San Luis Obispo. The tamales we picked up across the street at The Tamale Queen were also excellent (pork more than chicken). If you do happen to be in San Luis Obispo, though, the clam chowder at the Splash Cafe was superb. Apparently it’s also available at Costco. Don’t know if it’s a recommended accompaniment to their famous giant bags of tortilla chips, $3 for 5 lbs. Anyway, point is: tacos from a truck are better than tacos not from a truck.
