Best Mexican in East LA?
I am making a rare trip out to East LA and beyond (to Riverside) and am dying to have great Mexican food for lunch. Is there a signature place that I should definitely visit and/or a signature meal? I'm open to everything, don't care about atmosphere, just want great food. Thanks!
One possibility, If you like moles, is a place in East LA that has gotten a lot of good reporting here and is very unique. Nice photo in this LA Times review and if you go to the place link and scroll down you can read the reviews on CH as well. We have not been so can't tell you personally how it is.
Someone will inevitably mention El Tepeyac, but from what the owner of Ciro's down the street told me-- El Tepeyac is California Mexican. I like it for what it is, although in the last several months its become somewhat expensive for what it is.
