MARISCOS 4 VIENTOS ~ OLYMPIC BLVD.

12186

I consider this to be my “secret” spot, and if this review blows it up, well don’t say I never told you anything good! :)

This truck is usually on Olympic near Soto… go east down Olympic past the Sears auto center. There will be two trucks on the right hand side across the street from some housing. One truck, is super crowded (this one) one truck no one is at (don’t go there, trust me). If a truck is empty, the food is bad (my taco truck science).

Recently this truck opened a second one around the corner that they serve from ONLY if the first truck on Olympic is too crowded. The menu is as simple as it gets, shrimp tacos, seafood tostadas, ceviche, seafood cocktails, oysters.

The tacos are so good, I can’t even really describe the taste… shrimp fried in a shell with a ceviche/seafood sauce on top and lots and lots of ripe avocados layered on top. The seafood tostada (or it could be listed as shrimp and octopus tostada) and the ceviche are both really really good, and cheap.

There area around this truck is like a party– vendors blasting music, selling belts and homemade pastries. Sometimes I bring my own beer, but I’m usually doing that anyway around that area.  The spot is really close to alot of graf yards so if you’re out on the hunt stop by this truck for some tacos.  I’m pretty certain they are only there on weekends.

  4. yeah you burned the spot now the prices are going to get higher and the lines are going to get longer!! lol yeah that is the spot i hope it stays that way.I was there on Sunday and was taken a while back by other homies who been going there for a while. I like lounging and eating my food down the street behind the warehouses. Cocktel and ceviche bomb the shrimp tacos bomb.

  7. ^^ lol yep ;) i been going there for years, so probably. i checked yelp only 4 reviews on there so far, so it hasn’t really gone off in that way. TACOZONE on the other hand… holy shit what happened? tried to go there a couple weeks ago and it was straight up mobbed with people. its hard to get people to eat seafood offa truck so i think this place is safe ;) and the prices have gone steadily up but not too bad… tacos up to 1.50 now. still worth it.

  8. Yes Taco Zone! The first time I went there was like two years ago and it was crowded but not as much as it is now. The line is hella long i bet them ladies make crazy money.My fav is the chicken!

  9. Excellent field report my friend!

  10. The taco trucks are on the corner of Olympic Blvd and Evergreen Street. A few months ago they opened a restaurant named the same “4 Vientos” a few blocks east of the trucks. It is located on Olympic Blvd and Lorena Street. On weekends they sometimes have live music.
