best quesadilla near Ktown/Echo Park/Los Feliz...

i've recently moved here from san francisco, and have yet to find a quesadilla that compares to my favorite back in SF, el farolito. they make a super quesadillo with avocado and crema in it, that's ridiculous. i usually get it with both carnitas and chorizo.

so far the best i've had was at Cactus in Ktown. it was pretty tasty, too, but they def seemed to think it was odd that i wanted everything inside the quesadilla...

  1. Sabor a Mexico, which used to be located on the Westside, made incredible quesadillas "estilo D.F."
    Last I heard they moved to an area that would be described as Koreatown adjacent. Here's the contact info:

      Sadly they sold that location and have moved on from their business... so sad, they had HIGH hopes...

    2. Maybe not what you're thinking about, but the best quesadillas I've had come from a lady who runs a little cart on Echo Park Ave just south of Sunset. I can't tear myself away from the squash blossom ones, but I think she does chorizo too.

        I've been by there many times and have never been able to find her. Do you happen to know when she is there?

      2. The Mexicali stand on Beaudry and 1st, on the outskirts of downtown, has an amazing garlic-infused quesadilla they call a vampiro, available with asada, chorizo or chicken. great salsas to go with it too.

          THE BOMB! The Cechalada is also very good and unique!

        2. I love the Sincronizada at Alegria on Sunset. It's on their lunch menu but it's packed with tasty pork carnitas, jalapeƱos, and grilled onions. Super delish! At night they'll make a regular carnitas quesadilla for you if you ask one of the nice folks there. The best news is that they finally take credit cards at Alegria.

            Hooray! Alegria now takes credit cards?! I would have been happy just to use my debit card. Will go more often now. The Sincronizada sounds really good.
