Vietnamese Brisket Tacos
I live in Los Angeles, where we are very fortunate to have a number of food trucks and eateries that serve stand-in-line-worthy Vietnamese-Mexican fusion. Vietnamese tacos might seem like a weird combo, but just trust me. It’s a match made in food heaven. Tender meat and crunchy veggies are dressed with savory, tangy, sweet, and salty ingredients for a happy marriage of flavors and textures—no waiting in line required.
