Substitute for El Taurino

EV Andrew | Oct 4, 2004 07:03 PM

So I am doing some advance Mexican scouting before hitting LA for 5 days. Usually hit my taco higlights and then spend a bunch of time scouting for new highlights.

Just read below that El Taurino has a fire and is closed for now.

Could anyone suggest some similar places. I used to love getting there early on the weekends for the barbacoa and the costillas.

Are there any substitutes at the Farmers Market, or anywhere else for these types of items ?

Any and all other Mexican suggestions would be great.
In addition to the items mentioned above, I am looking for carne asada, carnitas and al pastor tacos, as well as excellent tamales.

Thanks in advance.
