It’s been a wild few months for the El Ruso crew, the makers of some of the best tortillas and tacos in La Loche. Just over a year ago, Walter Soto and Julia Silva moved the trailer from Boyle Heights to Silver Lake, which make up right on Sunset Boulevard while teasing a new second truck on social media. Since then, the second configuration has indeed arrived, moving from two different arts district locations to two different Highland Park locations, although the EL RUSO is back to a single platform as the property is the next. And if that wasn’t enough, now Soto and Silva have decamped from their first silver lake location to a space just a block away, but for very good reasons: more space, the same facade of the street and interior seating room, air conditioning and a bathroom. Check out the casual setup below. Fortunately, fans continued to find them at their new home at 3110 W. Sunset Boulevard, and the menu and hours (11 a.m. to 11 p.m.) remain the same.
