    Everything here is homemade, servers are very welcoming, the menu has a lot of familiar mexican food dishes but with a La Casita" twist and there's very nice art on walls! I order the Conchinita Bibil

    Chefs Jaime Martin del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu are everywhere if you follow Spanish-language media. Try the purple-corn pozole, delicious enfrijoladas, and an impeccable version of chiles en nogada! Read more

    The spiritual home of Mexican cooking in Los Angeles at the moment: start with a basket of warm chips drizzled with jet-black mole poblano, a chile-laced red pepian and a green pepian. Read more

    La Casita is twice the size it used to be, you'll be happy to hear. You can get a glass of wine now (although you'll still want the alfalfa drink), and you can call for a reservation if you want one. Read more

    The heart of the menu is the lush moles, each as vivid and distinct as a Frida Kahlo portrait. Read more

    Sure the team there has gone on the open several other places since, but this remains the real destination for anyone looking to explore what Mexican cooking can be. Read more

    It looks like a hole-in-the-wall on the outside, but on the inside is some wonderful authentic Mexican food in a charming setting. And don't forget to save room for the Churros con Cajeta (caramel)!

    Chilaquiles! There are 4 different choices: rojo, verde, chipotle, and mole - so many choices! And all so delicious - especially if you get it with chorizo - you won't be disappointed.

    When pressed to answer the question, what is the best mexican restaurant in Los Angeles, this is my stock answer. The chile en nogada is terrific, sure, but don't miss out on the 3 house moles.

    One of the best Mexican places in LA. It is so good that it is almost worth trekking out to Bell just for it. The chiles en nogada are a must!

    There's nothing particularly unique or spectacular about the ingredients for their churros, yet La Casita Mexicana chefs...transform one of the most popular Mexican desserts into a sublime treat. Read more

    The hardest decision comes at dessert, when you’ll be forced to choose between caramel-filled churros and ultra-rich flan. Read more

    Their specialty dish is their Chiles en Nogada, which is a Poblano Chile Pepper stuffed with ground pork, nuts, seeds, dried fruit topped with either a walnut or pecan sauce & pomegranate seeds.

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Enchiladas "La Casita Mexicana" were delicious, especially the caramel stuffed churros!

    Not for the peanut-allergic, they are all over the place and the staff doesn't seem prepared to discuss allergies at all. Tasty food and unique recipes, and worth the shlep.
