Here are our picks for spots you should try out this month:


Carne asada cooked over an open mesquite fire just has that extra something special. Add hand-pressed flour tortillas to the mix, and you’ve just landed in taco heaven. Over at Sonoratown, they serve up some of the best tacos in Los Angeles. And no, we’re not exaggerating.

Drawing culinary inspiration from the Mexican state of Sonora – in the north of the country – Sonoratown has a small, but perfectly executed menu of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and caramelos. All entries use flour tortillas, a staple of the Sonoran region. Selections of meat include grilled steak, braised chicken, tripe, and chorizo. Where to eat downtown los angeles dtla

While we don’t want to explicitly recommend trying one of everything, it’s not something we’re opposed to. If you’re limited to just a couple items however, we think you should try the steak tacos, and the chicken Chimichanga.
