Again, if you're on the hunt to satisfy your Mexican specialty hunger, this is the place you need to make your pit stop at. Guy loves this place and is sure you'll be impressed with the handmade Tamales that has made this place a local legend. They also make the best Chile Relleno in the city as far as we're concerned. This vibing lunch spot in the heart of Los Angeles makes everything from scratch and is a hit over the weekends. They also have an insane Vegan menu which will happily rival any in the state. The food is truly fresh and will literally melt in your mouth. As foodies, enjoying a great quality meal is life and when you stumble upon a gem such as this, you make a note of it. We would like to point out however that in recent times, driving by, we've noticed that they appear to be temporarily closed? Hopefully this is not a permanent situation and the family decided to re-open it to the thriving, popular restaurant it deserves to be. A small and perhaps hard to find diner, once you get there you'll appreciate what family run diners are truly about. Upon entering, you will be greeting as part of the family and the experience simply continues to improve. We love this place and if it is open, be sure to check them out for sure.
