Randy Chew Food Review: My Taco

my taco,skateboarding, L.A. food, los angeles mexican food

I'm at My Taco in Highland Park, Los Angeles CA. I have been going to this spot for the last 11 years and have watched it grow. It has a great salsa bar and the asada and pastor have amazing flavor. one must try the guac sauce. They also have carne asada fries that are great for those with the munchies. 5 years ago I would give this place a 5 burrito rating but because i have eaten here so much, i am a little O.D.ed on the spot so i give it 4.5 burritos. If you are at the Garvanza skatepark it is a great lunch spot 3 blocks away. Skate Hard.

Sunday Soul

I'm feeling Tommy Guerrero's music and wanted you to check it. Tommy has achieved expertise in skateboarding, music and art that has been inspiring to many. I remember how psyched I was on his Future Primitive part back in the day. I dig this jam entitled 1966 from his record From the Soil to the Soul He's got a new album out called Lifeboats and Follies. You can check out all his stuff here on his website. Have a great day.

Everyone at Vu is Blunted

Here's a video from the Vu Skateshop crew that is all about blunts. In fact every trick is a blunt trick. It's "Puff Puff Pass" and it's straight outta Balmer, Maryland and shot exclusively on the Vu mini ramp. Gary, Carl and the guys throw it down and come up with some crazy tricks as they wait out the winter.

Downhill Ride

This is pretty crazy. I don't really ride a bike that often but I think all of us who skate can appreciate this. Valparaiso is a coastal city in Chile that has some steep hills.

It was a brutal week for many. Our thoughts are with our friends and all the people of Japan after the devastating earthquake and tsunami. May we all treasure and enjoy our lives and not take for granted our health and safety. That said, please have a great day and a great week.

You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific or click here to make another donation. Thank you.

Crazy Pipe and Pool Skating

We all see lots of street and park skating but this is a whole different deal. This video is Chris Miller and Wrex Cook ripping the Upland Pipe and Pool. The sound alone is crazy and the speed and scale are insane. Props to skaters who rip like this.

Geoff Kowalchuk Mag Minute

Renaissance man and banker, Geoff shoots great photos and rips it up. I mean he throws it down. He'll shoot a couple pics, put the camera down and then throw down some ill tricks. He shot a bunch of our Lowcard ads and they look great. In the 1990's, we'd say Geoff "has mad skills". Congrats on the Mag Minute.

R. Chew Food Review: Burrito Kingdom

burrito kingdom,skateboarding

So today's spot is called Burrito Kingdom and is more of a stand then a restaurant. It's located next to a liquor store so you can grab a tall can to go if need be. It's located on the corner of Atlantic and Alhambra Rd. in Alhambra. I used to go here with my friends Ian and Drew at least once a week before or after band practice. Beans and cheeses burritos all around with a large coke. I got mine with extra hot sauce and extra cheese. It sticks to the ribs and is delicious. I rate it 4 out of 5 burritos. Great hangover spot. Must check it if in the area.
