Beverly Hills is known for high-gloss retail, fancy hotels, and A-list restaurants like Spago and Cut. However according to Thor123, this high-tax-bracket city-within-a-city should be known for something else: carnitas.
Thor123 says on Chowhound that Frida Mexican Cuisine on Beverly Drive has some of the best carnitas in all of LA. It's nicely marinated and highly juicy, great in the various ways it's offered: as a platter (served with beans, rice, salsa, guacamole, and house-made corn tortillas), in tacos (pictured), in a burrito with queso fresco, or in a torta. All the more striking that Frida's shines, given the dearth of good Mexican food in the area.
