Gourmet tacos in Atwater: Gentrification complete

As if Canele and 55 Degrees wine weren't enough proof, the new taco stand coming to Glendale Blvd. isn't just any taco stand -- it's Hugo's Tacos, reports Franklin Ave. We were going to take a picture on our way home from Palate last night, but Mike saved us the trouble. Hugo's Tacos is an offshoot of Hugo's Restaurant, the popular brunch spot. Hugo's Taco's already has one location in Studio City with honey chipotle salsa, soyrizo burritos, organic rice pudding and such. Whatever will the more homespun Tacos Villa Corona think?

There's room for both. Tacos Villa Corona rocks and Hugos is welcome. And, don't forget to try the "taco truck" at Fletcher & Larga and the Pupusa stand at the Fletcher Dr. house one block south or so... No reason, you can't hit them all. All are better than taco bell.

It's on Glendale Blvd, not Brand - across from Acapulco.
There's always room for tacos!
