If you guys are in the mood for tacos I recommend going to Guisados on Sunset BLVD. Taco's are BOMB over there and their tortillas are made fresh! Went there when I was in LA 2 weeks ago and I wish they had one here in the bay. Go to the sunset location not sure if the other locations make the tortillas fresh.

Anyone who goes report back, I had the Tinga de pollo which has a little spice to it, mole poblano which I wasn't a big fan of and the pescado which was good as well.

Visited guisados, best tacos ever! so good. ordered a steak pecado, chorizo, tinga (chicken) and another chicken.

I'll have to try the horchata next time too.



Also if you like coffee, then blacktop in the arts district is great. Pie hole is a block north.

My dude :smokin Glad you liked them. Did you go to the one on sunset? The fresh hand made tortillas really do make a difference.
