    Second only to Guelaguetza in traditional Mexican fare, the Queso fundido, calabacitas, and aguas frescas here are the best grub at the Farmer's market. A tall order indeed.

    This taqueira at The Grove is the best in Los Angeles, IMHO. Reminiscent of the ultra-refined cuisine you find in hallowed spots of el DF - and throughout Mexico Lindo! Highly Recommended!

    Grab a Probaditas sampler, but be sure to include the Albondigas en Chipotle: Juicy beef meatballs bathed in a tomato and chipotle sauce, garnished with onion and cilantro

    A MUST in L.A. Get the "Probaditas": a dish with 14 mini tacos, so you will try everything (beef,chipotle,chicken...). Best guacamole in town and excellent "Aguas frescas" (drink made of fruits!)

    Green Chilaquiles with eggs on top. Only second to the ones near the Zocalo in Mexico City. If you have kids they can enjoy the creeps just across the way. Win-win

    Potato tacos at their finest. Food Network star, Chef Duff, chose the mole enchiladas here as the best thing he ever ate with chocolate. A big statement from the king of pastries himself!

    I really enjoyed the shrimp tacos with salsa morita. The shrimp were plentiful, plump, and tasty! And the sauce had a nice spice to it.

    Located in the middle of the LA Farmers' Market, this 17-seat counter has some of the best - and cheapest - food around. Try the tortilla soup and vegetable tacos.

    Sopes...get the Carne Deshbrada sopes! Melts in your mouth. Shredded beef in a flavorful tomato sauce stacked on top of a thick corn tortilla (like a Mexican English Muffin) w/ beans, lettuce, guac.

    Get here early. Bkfst: huevos con chorizo, cafe de olla, and papas con rajas. During the day, mole enchiladas are muy bueno, too.

    Such authentic mexican food. The chilequiles are awesome and reminded one blogger of a trip to Mexico.

    Prepare yourself for a great, flavorful burrito. I recommend either the shredded chicken or the roast pork. One of the best burritos I've ever had.

    Go to Loteria Grill - Farmers Market. The BEST chicken nachos, ever! A small should do (they're pretty big), unless you're going to share!

    For chilequiles lovers, this might not be the best spot. Stick with the delicious meats in their sopes and tacos!
