If you live in or near East Hollywood (or have ever taken Bette Davis’s famous advice), you’ve driven by El Zarape on Fountain. And if you’ve never stopped in before, it’s time you change that. This taqueria is home to the best cabeza tacos in the neighborhood - we recommend dabbing them with some habanero salsa, to add a wickedly spicy kick to the fatty head meat - then taking a seat to watch some soccer on their covered patio. The chilaquiles are also great, and if you want something more substantial, the shrimp and carne asada burrito is definitely the way to go.
