El Jacalito

Mexican in Lomita

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner

The menu at this casual spot on Narbonne is full of Mexican classics, but you should be concentrating on the Platos Oaxaqueños section. Among these Oaxacan dishes, our favorites are the enchiladas topped with mole (get the mole negro), pork ribs with cactus, and the tlayuda - a crispy tortilla that’s bigger than a dinner plate and topped with black beans, cheese, cabbage, and whatever meat you feel like. And by whatever meat you feel like, we mean you have to get the fantastic chorizo.
