La Capital Tacos
The birria tacos at La Capital, located in a former cab stand downtown, are some of the best you can have anywhere—and that includes Mexico and Los Angeles. The graffiti-covered interior is a nice place to sit and have a moment with a cup of consommé that will live rent-free in your brain forever. Don’t be afraid to branch out from birria, either. The vegetable calabacitas filling is great, and their chorizo quesadilla has a thick layer of oaxaca cheese.
