The second location of Culver City’s great taco spot Loqui is a lot like the original: You order at the counter, there’s a nice little patio, and they’ve got utterly fantastic flour tortillas, made in-house. You should always opt for them over the corn ones, especially if you order one of Loqui’s combo plates, because then you can use the soft, Frisbee-sized tortillas to scoop up the rice, guacamole, protein (our favorite is the chicken), and pinto beans. When you’re in the Arts District and want something affordable - but also want to be able to sit down and maybe have a beer while you eat - Loqui is a great option. Just make sure to get a pack of tortillas to go.
