LA Weekly's Description

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.

    Let's say it was ok, not the greates tacos and these are the following reasons
    1-pricing a bit to high
    2-Tortilla hand made but to thick, its not a sope.
    3-Some guisados still need the authentic mexican flavor
    4-The Aguas are good.
    5-Need some realy good salsa maybe some serranos toreados as well.
    6-Sitting is very limited.
    7-Art gallery wall is kool

    You can pay a buck & get a little packet of chiles torreados as a side, or you can get them as a taco wrapped in a thick corn tortilla with Guisados’ liquid habanero chile salsa on top -Jonathan Gold

    If you dare, try the tacos with chiles torreados, ultrahot chiles grown in Armando De La Torre's backyard, sautéed until they practically melt from the heat, served in a fresh tortilla.

    On Heat Seekers, chefs Roger Mooking and Aaron Sanchez test the heat of the Tinga de Pollo Taco, stuffed with chicken marinated in chipotle and onions, at Guisados in LA. Find more tips at FN Local.

    I tried the Taco Sampler, 6 mini-tacos of the chef's choice, and it was so yummy! They made with hand made mini-tortillas and the sauces are incredible...definitely not your typical taqueria!

    Hongos are on point. When I eat them, they make me feel like super Mario.
