El Gran has started serving fantastically good arroz con leche.
Lest anybody think I only go to El Gran, because I keep recommending it for this and that - I've had tons of arroz con leche in this town. I am an arroz con leche fanatic. This is great arroz con leche.
It is milky, slightly sweet, and beautifully balanced.
This makes up for the fact that, for the last two years, their horchata has sucked balls.
This is, along with the beautiful atole at the Oaxacan truck on Rose near Venice, in my Top Two Hot Latin American Beverages list.
If anybody can suggest even better arroz con leche, I am all ears. I am about to start going to East LA more regularly, so those are welcome.
