Sonoratown Mid City
The original Sonoratown is one of LA’s great taco institutions and a must-stop for any Angeleno serious about asada. But braving the congestion around Downtown can be a tall order, even for one of their chivichangas. But if you happen to live closer to the Westside (or just want a slightly easier parking situation), head to Sonoratown in Mid-City. Located in a quiet strip mall on San Vicente, this second outpost has easy-breezy parking and shorter lines, but the same legendary flour tortillas. Our usual order is the caramelo filled with smoky grilled steak, which is about double the size of a regular taco and comes topped with salsa roja, avocado, and shredded cabbage.
