LA Weekly's Description

Alegria is the kind of Mexican bohemian hangout you may have suspected must exist somewhere in Los Angeles, an art-infused Silver Lake cafe where the talk always seems to be of music, gallery shows and the depredations of City Hall. The usual taco plates and vegetarian burritos are well-represented, but the best food here revolves around the extraordinary mole sauce: sharp, thick, sweetly complex, with top notes of smoke, clove and citrus, lashed with dried-chile heat, black enough to darken the brightest Pepsodent smile. (It takes two days to make, a million steps, and has something like 20 ingredients.) If you insist, you can get a side of mole sauce to put on your burrito.

    BEST POTATO TAQUITOS ON PLANET EARTH and oddly enough, some of the only decent mexican food in echo park. Yay gentrification!

    What’s all the rage is Alegria’s food. Order the carnitas… They use an old recipe that is incredible -- just flavorful and delicious.

    Get the Tacos Dorado (one chicken and one potato)! Great Agua Frescas using seasonal fruits.

  • David J. on 03/17/10

    Try the crispy carnitas (or just about anything else on the menu for that matter).

  • Cricket T. on 01/19/11

    The Jason burrito is my favorite burrito on the planet. The pozole verde is amazing ! The food here tastes like my moms kitchen.

  • Tom C. on 01/08/10

    Super fresh guacamole. Great mole (and gluten free which is unusual). No booze but BYOB is welcome.
