el charrito on virgil

how has this place not been mentioned on this board?

located on a particularly taco dense stretch of virgil near silver lake. i got a tip that this place makes their own tortillas, a rarity in these parts. after having driven past it for years decided to check it out. holy crap.

what a difference a fresh tortilla makes! totally negates the need to slather it in oil and reheat it. way less greasy, so friggin delicious. so far i have only tried the asada and pastor and both are outstanding, perhaps dethroning taco zone as my local taco of choice.

while you are in the neighborhood, check out the motorcycle/coffee shop "choke" across the street. great coffee from a lovingly restored 1963 italian cappuccino machine. one of the cooler places i have been to lately.

are there any other places in the silver lake/echo park vicinity that make their own tortillas?
