I had the tres tacos (carne asada) plate, plus fresh papaya agua for about 5 or 6 dollars. I thought it was pretty good.
712 N. Vermont Avenue
(near the 101 fwy exit: Vermont)
Does anyone else like this place? Is there a better alternative in the same area?
I had an unfortunate incident at this Que Ricos
I agree with rednyellow and burger boy. El Gran is much better.
but if you want the best tacos in that area and it's after 7:30pm head to the El Matador taco truck at the corner of western and lexington (1174 N Western Ave)
I read your review on your blog, Bandini. I really like your blog, by the way, and the pics (so many tacos!)
The food I had at Que Ricos on Vermont today was pretty good. I can't say it was the best, but I liked it. I also really like that they make their agua frescas. You can't always find that at other places. I have tried their melon and their papaya aqua frescas so far. Prefer the melon. I wonder if their horchata is real or powdered.
Problem is, I'm not in the area at night (only for work), so I'll miss the El Matador taco truck. :( I can check out El Gran Burrito, though.
Thanks, to all, for the info. I will reference this info for future lunch time eating. :)
I used to live near the Que Ricos on Victory near Coldwater Canyon in North Hol...er... Valley Glen. It was just "OK" -- the wet burritos were the things to get there -- but it was always overshadowed by Carnitas Michoacan, which had better food (except wet burritos) and easier access from my house.
re: Das Ubergeek
I was trying to decide if I liked Que Ricos better or El Indio Azteca (my old standby In Northridge). I liked the flavor of the food at El Indio Azteca better, but they didn't have the salsa bar or the aqua frescas. If I could find a place that has the salsa bar, the aqua frescas AND the good carne asada (close to home or work), I wiould be very happy. :)
