Bee Taqueria in West Adams wouldn’t feel out of place in Ensenada (or Austin, for that matter). Their outdoor dining room is filled with picnic tables and multiple firepits, and decorated with spray-painted murals of angels and lions. And while they do have a wide variety of tacos, it’s actually the non-taco options that stand out here. The sea bass ceviche is fresh, and full of crispy, flavorful canchas, and the jamón sánguche with smoked ham, red onion, and avocado is great. The tacos don’t quite match up, though - the beet tinga is good (especially with spicy chile morita), but the meats like lamb, arrachera, and cochinito were a bit dried out and over-sauced. It’s a good spot for an outdoor meal in West Adams, but at this point, stick with the sandwiches and ceviches.
