You don't get carne asada here; you get floppy scraps of fried pigskin simmered in a chile sauce, or griddled steak in chile-enriched tomato sauce, or a spicy Poblano-style chicken mole given texture with nuts and grains and seeds. This is one of the few taquerias in Los Angeles where a vegetarian could happily eat — there are tacos of stewed squash with chiles and kernels of sweetcorn; mushrooms sauteed with onion and cilantro; and quesadillas that are less what ordinarily goes by that name than they are slabs of panela cheese sizzled on the flattop and tucked into a tortilla.

These tacos are the reason Guisados tied for first place (along with Mariscos Jalisco) in... More »
If you are the type of person who looks at a menu and hems and haws and parses and analyzes and reconsiders, please, for the sake of the friends who must witness this agonizing display of indecision and self-doubt, let Guisados save you the trouble. The Boyle Heights eatery, famed for the braised and stewed stuffings that fill its tacos, offers the Taco Sampler, six minitacos that are handpicked for you -- thankfully -- from almost a dozen menu options. The tacos arrive plated like... More »
