These folks are fantastic!. They have been so supportive of the arts community in Los Angeles by serving tamales at openings and premieres and having a gallery in their restaurant. They are located across the street from MacArthur Park at 2124 West 7th Street, LA CA 90057, 213-487-4300.
Yesterday, I ordered the tomato basil soup which came with a scoop of Mexican Rice in the bowl. It felt great to eat something so homemade and conforting.
The tamales were awesome, of course. This time, I ordered the Michoacan Tamale, beef with pasilla chile sauce. It was so tender and hot, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
