Oh the Tacos at Guisados!

It’s just down the street from Dodger stadium, which I did not think about till I found myself in a string of stagnant cars filled with people wearing blue hats. I wasn’t there for the game, I was there for mole’.

Standing in line with a bunch of hipsters I had plenty of time to check out the chalk board menu and its list of creatively named entrees, none of which looked familiar, I decided to do what all smart people do in new situations; order the sample platter. Now my not understanding the menu may have had more to do with my lack of Spanish than their creativity, but I tend to trust anyone who states on the menu that they don’t adjust the recipe. they know what they are doing and that is what you go there for.

From the menu: “Chiles Toreados-Habanero, serrano, jalapeno, thai, chiles blistered together over high heat. Served on top black beans. Adjustments kindly declined.”


And horchata, always order horchata. Their’s was the most cinnamony I have ever had, in a good way. Good enough to make up a new word; like cinnamony.

  1. Mole and horchata, the two best things about Mexcian food. I made mole that turned out really good – but I think Mom, Dad, Nancy, and Dee found it a little too “different” and politely ate some, but not more. I have leftovers! I can make a pretty darn good horchata, too!

  2. I have never heard or eaten horchata. Next time I go to a Mexican restaurant I’ll look for it.

    What did the girls think of Mexican food that was NOT Taco Bell nor Del Taco?
