La Parilla in Boyle Heights

This is a great Mexican restaurant in the classic mold of those wonderful places that operated all over the city when I was growing up. The chains have put most of them out of business, but La Parilla still serves generous portions of beautifully prepared and presented food, cooked in a familiar, yet intriguingly new way. The rooms are bright, yet a little funky. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The tortillas are perfect, fat, slightly greasy and add just the right accent to this super food. I can't wait to go back for another Filete a la Tampiquena. Gracias and bravo a la cocina!!
