Opened in Boyle Heights in December 2010, Guisados has expanded to locations in Echo Park, Downtown L.A. and West Hollywood. Guisados is renowned for their homestyle braises, served on handmade corn tortillas that are made to order from the fresh ground masa next door at Carnitas Uruapan. The stews and masa are still made and delivered from the Boyle Heights location several times a day to ensure freshness and flavor in every bite. All tacos are priced at $2.75 each, except seafood options, which are $3.
The menu includes steak picado, mole poblano, tinga de pollo, chicharron, chorizo, camarones (fajita-style shrimp), pescado (grilled white fish), and vegetarian options like calabacitas (squash, tomatoes, bell peppers, corn, onions) and the fiery Chiles Toreados - habanero, serrano, jalapeno and Thai chiles blistered together over high heat. Can't decide? The sampler plate features six mini-tacos - you can take the first six on the menu, or mix and match.
