Pozole anywhere in LA

jim2657 Jan 30, 2007 09:07 AM

HELP, I want to take some friends to have Pozole (preferably white, Guerreo/Michoacan style) but haven't a clue. I'm on the Westside, but don't mind driving if it's good.

          Both Mi India Bonita (4731 E. Olympic Blvd., East LA, (323) 267-8505) and Tere's (5870 Melrose Ave., (323) 468-9345) have very good red pork pozole, in each case I think on Saturdays only.

          I sometimes make the white/green chili kind myself (usually using some variant of this recipe: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/288418 ), but I haven't come across any place in town that makes it this way. (Not to say that it doesn't exist.)

            I agree, Mi India Bonita makes my favorite Mexican soups in town. Their style reminds me of my grandma's cooking.

            Loteria Grill in the Farmer's Market has a decent one. My favorite though is Tere's on Melrose. Reminds me of a rendition that a good friend of mine used to make from his mother's recipe from oaxaca.

              Tonny's in Pasadena does both Pozole and Menudu every day.

                  Gotta check out the posole at Tacos Por Favor on Olympic and 14th and get a chorizo and cheese taco while you are at it.
