Pulling a kevin here - any reports? Was thinking about going there after running errands in SGV tomorrow. Will also accept other suggestions.

    Yup - reports exits.

    LA weekly - http://www.laweekly.com/2013-10-31/eat-drink/colonia-el-puente/

    And - J Gold himself -


    And more. (But you'll have to google on your own, it's not that hard!


    I confess, it seems pretty darn perfect, considering all the times I went to Guisados thinking "Man. I if I could only have a beer with this!"

      I meant just from CHounds - I'm aware of the publications. But thanks.

      Just saw this. Don't know if it's too late...

      If you like Guisados, you'll probably like this place. Some similar guisado tacos with a little extra added to them. Cocktails and beer list are pretty solid. Probably not worth the extra drive, but if you're in the area, it's good. Also because there's really nothing else to eat in the vicinity.

        It is not. I held off for now because of other errands.

        I figured as much. But yeah, thought it was fairly convenient because I would've been in South El Monte area.

        Hopefully it's better than guisados and not just cause they have beer.
