When I first moved to Los Angeles seven years ago, I was introduced to the city’s own brand of street food: bacon-wrapped hot dogs and tacos. Dirt Dog LA has a beloved menu of bacon-wrapped hot dogs, but starting on Monday, June 26, Dirt Dog LA launches a new taco menu and you’ll definitely want to try it. Chef Robert and the team at Dirt Dog let me take a taste of these tacos before they are offered to the public on Monday and they are so good. I quickly devoured them!
I got to try the following tacos from the new menu: Chicken Tinga, Al Pastor, and Carne Asada. The flavors go so well together and they didn’t really need any salsa or additions, but the red and green salsas add a nice kick to them. The new addition to the menu will also feature a vegan taco as well!
From the hot dog menu, I sampled the following Dirt Dogs: The Green Dog, The House Dog, and The Elote Dog, which is a soon-to-be-not-so-secret menu item. I also tried the Dirty Esquite, which is basically like Elote off the cob. For dessert, I tried the Horchata Ice Cream, which came with churro. Yum!
Many thanks to Tim, Chef Robert, My, and Jermaine for an awesome visit! Check out the video above and the GIFs below.
