Luna, what appears to be a standard strip-mall burrito and taco joint near the Shatto Rec Center, promises a grand-opening soon at Vermont Plaza in Koreatown. And while we’d be a little more thrilled if this was a centrally-located version of that Pomona spot Luna that we enjoyed so much at East L.A. Meets Napa, there appears to be no holding back this store’s mascot as he takes his first bite. Yes, the banana-colored, grinning moon logo that graces Luna’s signage appears to be very, very excited, so much so that even crossing his spindly legs can’t hide his delight at what’s popping up here. Ai! Anyone else miss Mac Tonight yet?
Luna Tacos, coming soon to 401 Vermont Ave. Los Angeles.
