LOS ANGELES | Chef Wes Avila started Guerrilla Tacos as a food cart in 2012 while between jobs. In 2013 it evolved into a food truck and in 2018 a brick and mortar restaurant. The Arts District taco spot is known for serving up some of the most inventive tacos, tortas, tostadas, and other modern Mexican dishes in Los Angeles. Think no traditional ingredients like sea urchin, wild boar, and duck breast. All seasonal and locally sourced.

A highlight when I visited was the al pastor lamb plate. A soft, thick almost flatbread like tortilla topped with labneh, Persian cucumber salad, chile de valle, habanero labne, and succulent al pastor lamb. If you’re thinking that this sounds like a kebab you’d be right. Al pastor developed in central Mexico and is based on shawarma spit-grilled meat brought by Lebanese immigrants to Mexico.

Along with the al pastor, make sure you try the fried pork and tendon taco with chicken liver mousse, Fresno chilli, curtido, mint, cilantro, and Serrano chilli. And to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can’t go past the dense and delicious butterscotch doughnuts made with fried corn, butterscotch, and vanilla ice-cream.

For drinks, the cocktails is where it’s at. Try the “Ramon Bravo” – cilantro infused Amaras Verde mezcal with St George green chilli vodka, salted agave, charred pineapple, and El Yucateco Salsa Picante Verde.
