Pinches Tacos

The brothers behind Silver Lake’s Cha Cha Cha have hit the Sunset Strip with the provocatively named Pinches Tacos. Hung with a rainbow of cut-paper flags, sombreros, and colored lights and in close proximity to Bar Marmont, this tiny spot with a sprawling outdoor patio offers street vendor-style grub to partyers decamping from the local clubs. Spicy guacamole adds a kick to the pescado and carnitas tacos. A carne asada torta arrives on fresh pillowy bread, and mole flautas have the proper greasy crunch. Still, don’t expect the inimitable flavor of your favorite taco truck.
