Tacos of the 2013 mayoral race

emanuel-pleitez-taco.jpgChances are we won't hear a whole lot from or about Emanuel Pleitez as the mayoral race evolves into the big-bucks contest that everybody expects. [I'll be happy to be proved wrong on that, and Pleitez has shown the knack to get attention before.] But he was savvy enough to be only the second of the candidates to answer the blog L.A. Taco's call to come forward with a rundown of his favorite tacos. His faves are heavy with Eastside flavor, given his roots. Eric Garcetti has been the only other mayoral hopeful to answer the call, back in March: he liked the Cochinita Pibil at Yuca’s above all, but also recommended preferred tacos at Baja Ensenada, Tacos Delta, Villa Corona and Ariza.
