El Tarasco on Sunset

Burger Boy May 16, 2009 12:36 AM

El tarasco on Sunset in Silver Lake, near Mucheltorena is now open again, it was all lit up tonight and there were people.

    I ate there about three weeks ago. The owner said they had to fix a number of problems before they could get back open again. Sounds like the usual hassle that we are used to hearing.

    He told me the first couple of weeks they were only going to open on weekends, then open for their regular schedule.

      I ate there last week. It is resoundingly mediocre for being in a city that has an incredible amount of not just good but great authentic taquerias. It there is nothing wrong with the food but its just not great and is uncomfortably westernized. Thankfully there was no lettuce on the tacos but I would not have been surprised.

        what would be some other suggestions in the area?
        i thought this place was so much better than yucas has been for a long time. tacos always seem authentic to me, but by no means do i consider myself an authority on the matter.

          somewhat inexplicably, not much.
          there are a few trucks in echo park, a couple of places on virgil along the border of hollywood, but silver lake is really lacking in good, authentic mexican food. (i don't care for siete mares, mariella's has been ok in the past). best just to drive to highland park where your choices are endless.
