Slightly charred peppers coated in chili

Living in LA, stone’s throw from really great Mexican food, it makes it easy for one to take it for granted.

Like knowing I’m only 20 minutes from the beach yet did not go ONCE last year. It’s sad and wrong.

“I don’t eat nearly enough tacos!” I proclaimed to myself.

Which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands and drive out to East LA with some pals for what LA Magazine’s Jonathan Gold spouted to be the best Fish Tacos in LA.

I thought it would be fitting to throw in a stop at the best quesadillas while we were out there.


Now, I just deleted the rest of this post because it was idiotic. You’re welcome for saving you from having to read heaps of drivel.

Happy Memorial Day, people! Now, go eat some tacos.
