This week I've taken a friend from the UK (who had never had Mexican food before) on a local Mexican food journey, from the cheese-laden Mexican comfort food of Don Cuco's to the overstuffed fish tacos at Senor Fish and the small, intensely tasty tacos at Tacos El Sauz in southwest Glendale.
La Cabanita in Montrose for sit-down Mexican. Senor Fish is one of my favorite local spots, and I make a point of stopping by whenever I'm over in Eagle Rock. I live near Tacos El Sauz and have been meaning to try it ever since I moved in. I ordered a sampler plate of al pastor, carne asada and pollo tacos (carnitas was mysteriously absent from the menu), washed them down with a horchata and was immensely satisfied. The carne asada was particular good.
