The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

The menu at Bon­sai Asian Tacos —a bright red truck near the in­ter­sec­tion of Cer­ril­los Road and Ve­gas Verdes Drive — in­cludes a va­ri­ety of dishes, from a mango-av­o­cado-co­conut soup and a quinoa salad to que­sadil­las, stir fries, and a burger. But the fo­cus is — ob­vi­ously, de­servedly — tacos with an Asian flair. Bon­sai de­scribes it­self on Face­book as of­fer­ing an “ac­ces­si­ble gourmet ex­pe­ri­ence.” Its food is cre­ative, full-fla­vored, and ex­cit­ing with­out be­ing

pre­ten­tious — no foams or molec­u­lar gas­tron­omy in sight — and you don’t get more ac­ces­si­ble than a food truck in front of a pawn shop. Rec­om­mended: “An­gry” chicken wings; Healthy Belly quinoa salad; tofu, tem­peh, or pulled-pork tacos; and

Bon­sai stir-fry with tofu.
