Best Chilaquiles in LA

I moved down from SF and loved the chilaquiles served by the Primavera food stall at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market on Saturdays. Is there anything similar or can someone recommend good chilaquiles in LA?

  1. I don't know where you are located, but the best ones are at La Casita Mexicana, on Gage, in Bell. You can get it with different sauces, absolutely delicious. During the week they only serve it til noon, not sure of the weekends. The food is absolutely delicious and they make their own tortillas.

    1. My favorites are Pepy's Galley in Mar Vista (the gold standard in my book!) and then the guys at the Saturday morning Farmer's Market on Pico in Santa Monica.

        Pepys rules! Order the Chilaquilles and the Machaca, share with a couple friends and you have an EPIC Mexican breakfast....

          I agree with Pepy's Galley! They are my favorite so far.

        2. La Casita's the best I've had to date. Been meaning to try Pepy's some day. Believe it or not, the cafeteria in the Kaiser Imperial outpatient clinic (corner of Imperial & Bellflower Bl in Downey) has great chilaquiles too (only avail Fri mornings).

          1. For an upscale Chilaquiles experience, do try brunch at Jar. They probably are far from authentic, but very tasty none the less.

              Also not the most authentic, but very tasty are the chilaquiles on the brunch menu at Cha Cha Cha, on Virgil and Melrose.


            2. Thank you all! I'll give them all a try!
