I love Mexican food and I love the Mexican people. I could eat Mexican every day. I mean the people. Not the food. But I do love Mexican food nonetheless. I’ve spent the last few months in Los Angeles and I have to say, it has the very best Mexican cuisine I’ve ever had in my life. It’s made by REAL MEXICANS. I mean real “we didn’t come here legally and screw Donald Trump” Mexicans. Oh, and it is delicious! You want good Mexican? Don’t go to Mexico. Go to Los Angeles. Believe me. In fact, that goes for almost any kind of food. You like Thai food? Go to Los Angeles. The Thai food there is incredible. And it’s made by REAL MEXICANS.
I love it!
I recently talked to Soap Opera superstar Melissa Archer. Melissa is an incredibly talented actress who has had long runs as a lead in two of the biggest soap operas in the history of television: “Days of Our Lives” and “One Life to Live.” We got talking about our favorite Mexican restaurants in the LA area. Since she lives in LA and is a Mexican food junkie like me, I would consider her an expert. Here is her list vs. MY list.
Melissa Archer’s favorite Los Angeles Mexican Restaurants:
“El Coyote” on Beverly Blvd, “El Carmen” on West 3rd, “LA Buns” in Santa Monica, “Gardens of Taxco” 1113 N. Harper Ave, “El Campadre” on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood.
Jake Iannarino’s favorite Los Angeles Mexican Restaurants:
“Mercado” on Cahuenga Ave, “El Torito” at the Galleria in Sherman Oaks on Ventura Blvd, “Casa Vega” in Studio City, “El Coyote” on Beverly Blvd, and “El Campadre” on Sunset Blvd.
As you can see, “El Coyote” and “El Campadre” made both of our lists. So if you’re in LA maybe you should check them out. I don’t normally write about food, but I felt like it. So kiss my black ass!
