Ana Perez and her family own the taco truck Asadero Chikali. The business started out of her mother’s house, and eventually they saved enough money for the truck they bought last October. For the past three months, the truck has set up at an auto dealership lot on South Atlantic Boulevard in East Los Angeles, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
