Wow...fluffy tortillas!

This hole in the wall is in the corner of an inconspicuous plaza. All I can say is “Wow.” The tortillas here are handmade, fluffy, and flavorful. The portions are huge, the prices are cheap, and the atmosphere is fun.

Parking is fairly easy. The place is easy to miss too. Don’t mistake this restaurant for Chano’s which is on a corner on the other side of the street.

Carne Asada Taco

When you see the taco, it’s disappointingly, but deceptively simple. “Just a tortilla and meat???” Don’t be fooled. Go over to the salsa bar and top it off with the onions and cilantro mix and one of four salsas. On a good day, the meat is charred just right, with a kick to it. Other days, the meat has flavor but lacks the kick. The tortilla on the other hand carries this taco through. Ever since I found this joint, this has taken over as number 1 for me.

Baja Ensenada Fish Taco

The fish is crispy, but the guacamole is a bit overpowering. The tortilla is, as always, really good, but for some reason it doesn’t work as well with the fish. Go to Whittier instead…

Carne Asada Mulita

Unbelievable!!! MUST TRY. This is a tortilla sandwich, with melted cheese, guacamole, and the magical asada. The result is this fluffy, rich, unbelievable morsel of latino goodness. It’s not quite as heavy as a torta, but it’s something in the middle. I usually put salsa on my mexican food, but adding salsa would do it injustice. I can’t say enough about this one. GO TRY IT.

solid tacos, great Korean tacos of all things!

La Taquiza near USC recently started offering Korean tacos, and I tried both kinds – pork and short ribs.

I have to say, these are really good! They’re quite different from the much-ballyhooed Kogi. In fact, they’re closer to what I imagined “Korean tacos” to be. The emphasis is on the meat with both Mexican and Korean flavors/spices. Like crossing al pastor with spicy Korean bbq. There’s also kimchi and a slice of avocado in each taco. Only complaint with the short rib taco is that the chunks of meat were too large and hard to separate for smaller bites.

$2.50/pork taco, $2.75/short rib taco. A little bit more meat than your average taco.

Their regular tacos are solid, too. $1.50 – good stuff.
