Looking for the best sit down Mexican, Hollywood on westward
I am coming to town next week and I would love to hear about what is great on the Mexican food scene. Thanks!
On the Westside, three outstanding choices:
The Talpa on Pico & Barrington for rustic, tasty fare in a no frills divey sort of atmosphere. Great thick crunchy crispy chips and table salsa that packs quite a kick. The pork in spicy tomatillo sauce is to die for and can be had either in a burrito or as an entree. Great guac, as well. No liquor license, so only beer and wine and agave wine margaritas.
Lares on Pico near 34th - superb sit down Mexican food, good margaritas. The vibe upstairs is a little more high end than the dungeony feel of downstairs.
La Serenta di Garibaldi on 4th between Broadway & Santa Monica near the promenade serves up delish Mexican seafood that come with a wide choice of sauces.
