I'm looking for a quality Mexican Restaurant or Taqueria in the Highland Park or North Figueroa area.

Thanks in advance,

    Metro Balderas has excellent carnitas (that's all I've tried) on the weekends.

      I'm partial to My Taco, on York east of Fig. You can peer into the back and see all the fresh ingredients. It's always looked to be a very clean operation, food-focused.

        jonathan gold actually has good selections. hurache azteca is a good one, as well as my taco. i also really like el arco iris for atmosphere and drinks.

          You should review this prior thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7113... - While not all of these recommendations are for Mexican there are plenty of them that are. And who knows, you just might want non Mexican food every once in a while (a crazy idea - I know!) ;-D>
