Coming off a very disappointing Mexican meal at Cantina Frida, I was determined to have at least one good taco in L.A. How could I come to this city and not? I would never be able to forgive myself. Ironically, there was a more authentic experience right around the corner from Cantina Frida, which made the disappointing meal there all the more worse. Anyway, Guisados is a Mexican Restaurant with a couple of locations in the city, and they specialize in braised meat over fresh handmade tortillas. A benefit of this place is many of their locations open early, and serve breakfast tacos (but you can also get “normal” items too). The Beverly Hills location is a “hole in the wall” which is the way I want to eat Tacos. Note that there is a parking lot in front of the place, but you have to pay to park. The kind attendant let us park for half price as I mentioned we would be quick.
I ordered a tamale, bistek en salsa roja, and cochinital pibil.
Everything was extremely delicious and I was so happy to be eating this outside on a nice sunny morning. There are a ton of taco places in LA. I observed many taco stands set up on sidewalks and streets and these will definitely be a destination for a future trip. Staff at this location were friendly, and I would definitely go back.
