Guisado's takes over La Esquinita

I loved La Esquinita, but hadn't been there in quite a while. But today I drove by and saw it's got a new coat of orange paint, and a new sign: Guisado's.

I'll try it soon.

1261 W. Sunset Bl (btwn Elysian Pk. Ave. and Downtown)
Echo Park

    1. mikey, michael,'s not new...or better said, it was new, a couple of years ago.

      the tacos are ok, the tamales a little less than ok and that's all we had in the few visits we made.

      hopefully you have better luck.

        Maybe I just didn't get your point but I gotta point out that Guisados is brandy spankin' new. Like, this week new. Same ownership as the beloved one in east LA.
