Tacos Arizas, Sunset and Logan

The taco truck is Tacos Arizas. I go there –– and it’s tasty and delicious. I wanted to show a slightly grittier side to LA, but still totally romantic. This isn’t one of those Grade A restaurant trucks; this is more like a real street truck. I thought, that would be a great date –– him showing her a part of LA that is very real. She’s French and an actress. It was a way to test her –– can she deal with this? And she loves it. And so I thought, “oh, how romantic.”
