    The sheep's head meat taco is a go-to. The secret is in the dried corn of the tortilla, which imparts a slightly acidic tang. And god forbid you make any changes to this taco by adding hot sauce. Read more

    After growing up in Los Angeles my family has become a regular at this store. We mainly know it for it Totillas that are made by hand and the Tamale Masa.

    The best cheese and green chile tamales, as well as tacos de carnitas (order with everything!). They also sell their spongy hand-made corn tortillas to go.
