A cool blue interior belies the spicy fare served at this trendy taqueria. With 100 brands on hand, tequila is the aperitif of choice, but all good drinks lead to food, and the Tex-Mex dishes served here are done right. Chunky guacamole, the plato grande (a hungry man’s dish of skirt steak, picadillo enchilada and a superb chicken tamale slathered in mole), and the pastel de piña are all recommended, as are reservations.
Freshness is without question at this fast, healthy chain. Soft tacos are stuffed with fish, burritos are packed with grilled meats, and beans are stewed, not refried. The popular “Baja burrito” – grilled steak, black beans, onions, cilantro and cheese – is a meal in itself.
Your drunken prayers for a 24-hour downtown Mexican joint have been heard, and answered more than adequately by this colossal menu of deals (most items are under $5). The California burrito stands out with a mix of carne asada, crispy potatoes and bell peppers; a pair of fish tacos and a horchata makes for a classic SoCal taco stand experience.
Tex-Mex fare gets the Dr. Phillips treatment with higher-quality fare at higher prices. Guac prepared tableside is a must; meat-lovers will savor velvety tender carne asada, while vegetarians can get their fill of vibrant spinach enchiladas. Beware tighter waistbands after indulging in filling desserts.
Upscale Baldwin Park taqueria has honed its act in the kitchen, but still needs work on the service end. The mole is bueno, as is luscious chipotle pepper-cream sauce lathered over plump shrimp. Tres leches cake is a decadent capper.
