  1. Where in la mirada is mexican food located?

    1. El Taco Nazo, 121 S. Beach Blvd. (just south of La Habra Blvd.) in La Habra. Best shrimp tacos EVER EVER EVER... and those roasted chiles with lime and salt... and the carrots... ummmmmmmmmmmmmm... I'm drooling just TYPING about it!

      1. Ambrose Pizza in the Vons Center/Valley View & Imperial. Get the Small Slice special. Actually almost half a pizza, with yummy salad (homeade ranch & mozzarella on top) with a drink for about $4.00. Can't beat it!

        Also Mexico 1900 on Leffingwell & La Mirada. Great Chile Rellenos and lunch special margaritas. Good tacos too.

          I haven't been to Mexico 1900 in a while, but still have good memories. My parents favor Marisa's on Imperial/Santa Gertrudes for SOME REASON, but I find it mediocre at best. I guess it mostly has to do with low prices and no wait.

          Molcasalsa, I believe, has also been mentioned in other threads about the area. It's not a sit-down restaurant, but is good for large portions of quick food at low prices.

            I'd advise against ambrose pizza. it's awful. taste like card board. kinda like a mom and pop pizza loca taste.

              I do have to say that I prefer their pizza when it's made free form in a single serving, like the small slice. I think it's very good. Crisp edges, chewy crust, great with meatballs on top. Dip your crust in ranch! And yes, it does taste like a mom and pop place. That's the appeal! Don't be dissuaded, hounders.

          2. Golden Triangle on Greenleaf in Whittier has amazing Thai food.
