LOS ANGELES – Forget about wearing a fancy shirt just like his. In Los Angeles, fans of the world's most powerful drug trafficker are now having a bite of “El Chapo.”
Well, of a taco named after the captured Sinaloa cartel boss, that is.
A small Mexican food restaurant in Southeast L.A. is getting a lot of buzz since its opening four months ago thanks to a variety of plates named after Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán.
Flanked between a liquor store and a bodega, Los Tacos Desvelados (The Insomniac Tacos) caters to residents of Maywood, a small city of predominantly Latino population where many work in factories at nearby Vernon and Commerce.
