It's nice to see some conversation about Highland Park on this list (see discussion of Camilo's move to Eagle Rock, earlier thread). Anyone out there got any other recommendations about places to eat in the immediate area? I'd especially be interested to hear opinions on the best taco stand, of which there must be at least two dozen on Figueroa and York. Other recommendations also welcome. (We've know some places on Figueroa- Pescador (OK Mexican seafood chain), Las Cazuelas (good, Mexican-Salvadorean), La Estrella #2 (did not like the burritos at this taco stand), Folieros's (did not like the pasta or pizza at this "homestyle" Italian-American joint).

p.s. Thanks to this list for the recommendations on king cake several weeks ago. Gambino's was the answer.
