there’s one thing that the east coast is def lacking and i absolutely love is tacos. nothing can compare to the tacos on the west coast, although Taqueria Jalisco in east boston is a close match.
i have to make sure i OD on tacos whenever im in cali, so last trip to cali was no exception. we heard a lot about guisados so we went to check it out and it BLEW MY MIND.
if you have a hard time choosing what you want or just want to explore a variety of the tacos, they offer a sampler of six mini tacos.
before stuffing your face with their amazing tacos, be sure to have a drink in hand. my totally fave drink was this melon drink. it taste like straight up cantaloupe in a cup.
the drink on the right was armando palmero which was the combination of limon (lemon, lime) + jamaica (hibiscus tea)
guisados means ‘stews’ in spanish, so the tacos are not your typical tacos but rather in stew form. the juicy braised meat with its sauces def hold a lot MORE flavors and all served with different condiment and a hearty thick housemade tortilla. every single bite was a party in my mouth.
i loved every single bite i had at guisados. every taco and drink was perfect and without a doubt scrumptious. fireworks in my mouth. if you love tacos and visiting LA, this joint is a must.
