On Figueroa St., where the aura of USC mixes with the southern outskirts of Downtown LA lies La Taquiza, a small taqueria serving up mulitas, a "quesadilla on steroids". On the outside, the mulita means business with it's perfectly toasted homemade tortillas. Take a peek inside for melted jack cheese, your choise of meat (juicy charred carne asada for me), and a perfect touch of guacamole. The mulita is nothing but a taste sensation.
I came to La Taquiza for their mulita, but it would be a shame for me to go to a taqueria and not order any tacos. La Taquiza’s al pastors are incredible. Straight off the pit, the al pastors are excellent in flavor. There were some dry bits, but not enough to bring down my love for their pastors.
The asada’s had a steady finish from beginning to end. El Taquiza’s suadero tacos are also excellent. Definitely a lot more memorable than the suadero’s I’ve eaten at King Taco.
The mulitas and pastors at La Taquiza are succulently HAWT!
