Horchata without the pink syrup in West LA
I became a big fan of horchata after having it at El Taurino in K-Town.
But I live in Westwood and had to find the spot selling good horchata.
So I went to Jaquila and tried one.
But it has pink syrup which is very weird.
I like horchata without that pink stuff.
Does anybody know the place selling horchata without the pink thing?
And anybody tried chilacayote? I heard that it is like watermelon juice.
Where can I find it?
i can vouch for white horchata at El Sazon Oaxaqueno.
12131 Washington Pl, Los Angeles, CA
the other food there is also quite good.
Well Benito's (right near Juquila) also has horchata.
Not the best I've had but they don't add the pink syrup.
As far as I know, the tuna syrup is unique to Oaxacan Mexican restaurants: Juquila, El Sazon, Guelaguetza, etc. At the 95 percent of Mexican restaurants that don't happen to be Oaxacan, you will find the familiar pale beverage.
