If you think you might be in the wrong place, that means you’ve found El Parian. Located on Pico just west of Downtown, this long-running spot has a fantastic atmosphere with tiled floors, bright yellow walls, and maps of Mexico everywhere. As for the food, the carne asada tacos are fantastic, but you’re really here for the goat birria. The full plate is the way go, and as soon as you finish, you’ll be planning your next visit.
