The East LA extension of the Metro Gold line is set to open on November 15th!

Please see the map here: http://www.metro.net/projects_studies...

I thought it would be fun and in the spirit of past eating threads (i.e. where can i eat along the --- (red, blue, purple) subway lines?): http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/436632

      1. It may not be that close to walk to, but always worth it: El Tepeyac off of Mariachi Plaza.

        1. What are some of the must have dishes at these places? I plan to be there on opening day and am excited about the food!

          1. i work off the ELA civic center stop. I would have to add Lupe's #2 for bean and cheese burritos of many varieties. Moles La Tia is a quite a walk for an angeleno but not too much for a NY'r or SF'r. It's definitely worth it and probably necessary considering the portions.
            off Atlantic: again a walk for an angeleno Cook's Tortas
