Plancha: A Taco Joint

My family loves to find new spots in LA to gather around a table and enjoy a family meal. Our most recent adventure led us to Plancha Tacos, a taco joint on 3rd street near the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. For those of you that still have a life after 10pm...here is a new spot for late night tacos! Plancha Tacos offers "Tacos 'til Midnight" on Friday & Saturday evenings!


Plancha Tacos specializes in traditional street style tacos, burritos, kid's meals and vegetarian options in a casual setting where you have a choice of either dining outside on their patio or inside at the counter where you can watch all the magic happening.
 

We ordered a little bit of everything because everything sounded so good! Dad and I tried the Street tacos, the Fish taco, Tiger taco, Jimmy taco and the Vegetarian taco. We also had to try their NEW Jimmy Nachos. I love nachos! Dad really liked the fish taco the best. It's fresh grilled tilapia with guacamole on butter lettuce leaves instead of the flour tortillas. The tiger taco was my favorite. It's made with spicy garlic shrimp and melted jack cheese on corn tortillas. Yum! The Jimmy taco is filled with zesty ground beef in a lightly fried crispy corn shell along with tres quesos, lettuce and salsa. The new Jimmy nachos are served ballpark style! A tray full of the good stuff topped with nacho cheese...amazing!



My kids love Mexican food and they knew exactly what they wanted to order. Mya had the steak street tacos, Parker tried the beef taquitos Kid's Meal and Jackson had to have the steak fajitas. The meat portion of the steak fajitas is insane! His facial expression was priceless when he saw all that steak!
 
 
No business can function successfully without the proper management in place and the owner of Plancha Tacos has done a great job selecting his managers. We had the pleasure of meeting Elias, Plancha's Night Manager, and he took great care of our family. Everything was wonderful and we look forward to another visit really soon!
