Mexican Place with the best juices in OC
Mil Jugos in Santa Ana (the only Venezuelan Place in the LA area?) is a place I'll try. I think I've been to Jugos Acapulcos in Santa Ana once. Perhaps I'll try it again.
I like the housemade licuados and aguas at El Gallo Giro. While you're there, take home a pack of their tortillas; these are my favorite commercially made corn tortillas (hand made is a different story). The salsa verde here is also my favorite, lots of serrano chili heat, low on the tomatillo tartness.
Jugos Acapulco in Costa Mesa makes some really good aguas too. Not as enamored of their food. If I get tacos, I'll go a few storefronts down at El Toro Bravo, and get my drink at Acapulco.

re: Professor Salt
Note that El Gallo Giro is open 24 hours (at least the ones I go to). The lines are often quite a bit shorter between 3:30 a.m. and 4:00 a.m., when it's also easier to add a little vodka to your delicious agua.
BTW, I'm worried by the fact that they've just opened a location up north. I hope this small homegrown chain doesn't grow too fast and lose its way.
