What to Order @ Loteria Grill?

Hangin' out by Grove/Farmer's Market yesterday, and will probably [finally] check out this place. I took a look at their menu online and found the varieties a bit mind boggling - so a few questions:

~Any recs for favorite meats/veggies?

~Should I stick with just tacos or are their other items worthy of trying out as well?

~Also, I remember from LA Mag that they offer a "sampler plate" of sorts with lots of different tacos. Is it still true? (I took a peek at a posted online menu but found no such item)

  1. My favorite taco there is the poblano mole, although the cochinita pibil is also nice.

    1. Potato tacos too - yum!

      1. Ditto on the potato tacos. The chicken taquitos are also some of the best I've ever had -- crunchy tortillas, soft chicken. The chicken tinga tacos are also quite good. However, the chilaquiles are nothing special.

          ditto on the chilaquiles. they stink!

        2. The tasting menu is great if you aren't picky. It's a little bit of everything. The beauty of Loteria, is that you can get any of the fillings in several different ways: burrito, taco (corn tortilla or lettuce cup), taquito, etc. My faves are the chicken mole and their shredded beef really is out of this world. The potato with poblano peppers is also quite good. Also good is their tortilla soup - but it's a big bowl so be aware.

          It's one of my favorites - enjoy!

            They have a tasting menu?! I must try it! How do you order it? Do you just ask for "the tasting menu"? What comes with it?

          2. I love:
            chicken nachos--special and amazing!
            chicken enchiladas with green sauce /rice and beans are perfect
            the red sauce is good too
            chicken mole tacos or enchiladas-the mole is sweet and yummy
            egg dishes are great
            mushroom tacos
