From Miami we know LA has great Mexican food, but Kosher Mexican? Food was fresh, fresh, fresh, salsa burst with fresh flavor, fresh guac, fresh cilantro, everything tasty. I had tacos my wife had a burrito. Shlomo behind the counter encouraged us to try the dozen different sauces from habanero triple hot to mild roasted tomato. Great authentic flavor, even the black bean and rice side was tasty. Real mexican flavor, real stick to your ribs food if your hungry.

Kobe Ground Beef Taco tastes like a more robust ground taco meat than you’ll ever get at a restaurant. The beef flavor is accentuated by the chili and herbs. It is so juicy too! Thumbs up, way up! Birria Taco is lamb and beef mixed with dried chilis and braised for 16 hours. It was like the best lamb and beef stew inside a taco. It was braised so long that it just melts in your mouth. The chilis accent the meat with a slight sweetness without burning your mouth. You’ll definitely have an OMG moment or two! Thumbs up, way up! “Carnitas” Tacos is beef and duck confit slow cooked for 18 hours. Chef Katsuji really shows his talent in this meat. Since pork is off limits, he uses the beef for texture and the duck confit as a “pork flavor/fat substitute”. It tasted exactly like carnitas. I’m totally serious! It’s an amazing feat and I bow down to Chef Kat’s skills for showing the Kosher community what pork tastes like. Thumbs up, way up! Chef Kat has daily specials. On this visit, it was Goat – Black chile braised goat Texcoco-style (small city in Mexico famous for goat barbacoa). I love lamb and goat so this was just amazing to me! The meat was so tender, juicy, and flavorful. The braising process pretty much eliminates the gamey smell and flavor of goat, which I don’t mind. I could eat this every day. If it’s on special, get it! You’ll definitely have an OMG moment or two! Thumbs up, way up!

It only been dairy mexican food in Los Angeles that was Kosher, until now. Great tasting. Atmosphere...kinda like a cafeteria. The food is wonderful and makes up for the atmosphere.

Better tasting Mexican food than anyother place in LA - kosher or not. Of course, having meat they don't have the cheese enchildas. You have to live with that. The servings are huge - like in Elvis HUGE! Tasty selections of meat not normally associated with Mexican cusine i.e. lamb and duck. Service is friendly. The place is small, but hamish down home.

Best food around. Kosher, clean, tasty- meat is grilled to perfection and mole is fantastic. Wanted to bring "the folks" (82 yrs. young) but was too noisy. The combination of the stone floor (very nice but sends out echo) and the loud music covering up the already loud conversation doesn't make sense. It turns out to be a place for students and "quick stop" eaters- which is fine, is that is the goal. For older people- or for those of us that want a "quiet dining" experience- it doesn't jell. Food however is wunderbar! I looove the sauces. The styrofoam take out boxes keep it in the "cafeteria only" arena. May I suggest? Keep your food fresh and good (o.k. may be larger pieces of meat- but it's really enough- I'm from N.Y.) but change the atmosphere a bit. Just a suggestion. Keep up the good work though- know it's challenging!
