LA Weekly's Description

Ricardo Diaz's Colonia Taco Lounge in El Puente might teach you a lot of things: the possibilities of cauliflower, how to fall head over heels in love with a flour tortilla, how to eat far too much and somehow still want more. Let's begin with the tortillas: Would it be blasphemy to say that the corn ones here may be better than at Guisados? Slightly more delicate, slightly more musky with corn? And the flour tortillas, imported from Mexicali, taste comfortingly familiar but so much softer and more soulful than any cardboardlike disk you may have discovered alongside your platter of sizzling fajitas over the years. The cauliflower taco, served on one of those flour tortillas, channels everything you might love about a fried shrimp taco: The cauliflower, beneath its golden, crunchy batter, somehow has a pop and bite that satisfy that same place in your soul as a shrimp version. ¬óBesha Rodell

    "Delicate tongue tacos with green salsa are especially good, as are the tacos of chicken tesmole, an herb-intensive Oaxacan preparation thickened with corn."

    Get the Nachostadas - a trio of fresh-fried tostadas with molten Monterey Jack cheese, pico de gallo, and aged chorizo.
