Taco Spots with Unique Specialties?
I'm looking for some suggestions for eateries that specialize in, or at least have a particularly good iteration of, a particular taco/or quick snack. For example, the Arabes truck on Olympic in EastLos, Mariscos D.F. in Highland Park for the cocteles and tostadas, El Pariente in Highland Park for its Birria, or Flaming Taco in Echo Park for its Pastor. Can anyone offer me superior spots to those I've named above? What about a spot with tacos de canasta, potato tacos, quesadillas with huitlacoche/flor de calabasa, or cemitas? Maybe others that I'm not even thinking of? Ideally these spots would be in the general area between East LA and Highland Park. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Guisdados with, you guessed it...
2100 E. Cesar E Chavez Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90033
In this case you'll want to hit up Cacao Mexicatessen for their wonderful variety of veggie tacos, including potato and nopales, but extending on to a variety of very unusual tacos such as Flor de Calabaza (squash blossoms) and Flor de Jamaica (hibiscus flower) and Aquacate de Frito (panko encrusted avocado).

Quesadillas with huitacohce? Try Almas & Hoagies on the corner of 14th and Hooper in the Warehouse district (close to the 10 freeway). No ambiance, not much space, but great quesadillas.
