At the intersection of Silverlake, Los Feliz and East Hollywood, Ricky Piña gives away big smiles and $3 tacos. His recipe for happiness? Only three options (fish, shrimp or Ricky’s special, which is simply a fish-shrimp mix) prepared Baja-style with a top secret ancestral batter recipe. Easy peasy: catfish breaded and golden, a little shredded cabbage covered with pico de gallo in a still warm tortilla. You help yourself to more or less spicy sauces, and order an agua fresca or horchata to soothe the taco fire. Although Ricky’s food truck never changes location, it is useful to follow his Twitter account to spot the occasional buy-three-get-one-free deals. Four is the magic number.
