After half a year of research, 120 pages of writing, and over 100 tacos ingested, Rob released his sophmore book Tacocity: Los Angeles. The book covers over 70 of the best places in Los Angeles to fill your belly with the Mexican fare. Complete with mouth-watering, full-color photos of over 50 different tacos, the book was launched at Salazar restaurant in the Frogtown section of Los Angeles. The book sold out at the event, and guests got to sample the excellent cuisine created by chef Esdras Ochoa, head chef and co-owner of Salazar.
“I learned so much writing my first book [In the Belly of the Fail Whale] that I was able to apply to the process this time around. I also had an amazing editor and support from the chefs and taqueria owners I featured in the book, including Esdras. I wanted to not only write a definitive guide to tacos in Los Angeles, but highlight some of the incredible stories and people I met along the way.”
