10 Best Tacos in Los Angeles
|Sampler plate at Guisados|
The most difficult thing you will encounter at Guisados is the menu. There are so many guisados -- stewed meats and vegetables -- and only so much room in your stomach. And so, unless you're really set on a particular filling, your best bet is to order the sampler plate that come with six mini-tacos, each one filled with a fantastic meat or vegetable housed in a deliciously chewy handmade tortilla. These tacos are the reason why Guisados tied for first place (along with Mariscos Jalisco) in L.A. Taco's Taco Madness 2012, and we wholeheartedly agree with the vote. After you finish those six samplers, you might still have room for at least one full-size taco, which will bring you back full circle to your original dilemma of so many flavors, so very rapidly decreasing stomach capacity. You'll have to choose wisely now, but rest assured that you can never choose incorrectly. And don't forget the tamales. 2100 E. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd., L.A.; (323) 264-7201.
