LA Weekly's Description

Sí, Whittier isn't Orange County, but Arturo's Puffy Tacos might as well be, located just two blocks from La Habra, a postgame favorite for fans of La Habra High's mighty Highlanders football squad. Get the puffy, a fresh disc of masa flash-fried until the thing puffs up to create air pockets, then bent and stuffed with meat (usually carne guisada or picadillo), lettuce and a snowstorm of shredded cheese. It's as if a taco dorado decided to evolve into a sope but quit halfway, and it combines the pleasures of the two: thick yet airy, earthy, crispy, golden, one of America's great regional treats.

    Arturo's is a great destination for a taste of Tex Mex, but it lacks some of the cuisine's finer points. What you're left with are the puffy tacos, crisp and wide and fun to eat -- but not much else.

    I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu, but make sure you at least get the signature puffy taco.

    Puffy tostadas with ground beef and beans. Yummmmmm!!!

  • Scotty B. on 02/04/11

    The original puffy taco comes with ground beef and potatoes, if you've never had one you should try it. However, the carne asada here is amazing!

    So good! The ground beef is the best!
