I recently went to a conference in Lynwood, California (off the 105, near Southgate/Compton) and discovered a real gem of a restaurant. it is called La Huasteca and is located in Plaza Mexico on Imperial Highway. The decor is beautiful. In fact, I could picture having a wedding or other type of reception at the location.
The menu is wonderfully unique and the food is delicious. The chef has traveled around Mexico and brought back traditional recipes that have rarely been used at most standard Mexican restaurants.
I highly recommend this experience and will drive down there again just to visit this restaurant.
