Carne Asada is not a Crime


From Huffington Post:

The city of Los Angeles is trying to get rid of Taco Trucks: Those awesome little trucks on every corner smelling dreamily of blackened meat ’till the wee hours of the morning. Apparently the “stationary restaurants” have a difficult time competing and feel that the competition is “unfair.”
