Al’s Tacos, the popular blue and yellow colour-schemed eatery on Boeung Keng Kang 1’s Street 278, serves as a beacon calling passersby to drop in for a taste of SoCal – Southern California.
Everything there is not only made from scratch, but the Mexican street food favourite served is a product of love – from the pico de gallo to the floury corn tortillas – by the joint’s Cambodian-American owner Allen Dodgson Tan.
Tan’s father left Cambodia for California in 1980, and it was in Southern California that Tan tasted his first taco. He eventually enrolled in culinary school before joining the US Army, serving tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.
