Somebody pinch me! Our beloved Guisados has officially opened their third location, and this time it’s in my neck of the woods: The Spring Arcade Building at Spring & 6th. This has been in the works for some time – even the staff at the Sunset Guisados told me in April that the DTLA location would open within a few weeks – and there have been several delays, as is often the case with anything worthwhile. Especially in LA.
The line was out the door from the moment that they opened yesterday. (And, what lies beyond the door is a minefield of dead pigeons and syringes… I’m not even joking.) This is unfortunately the result of a poorly designed dining room, but hey, I got what I asked for and I’m not complaining!
Just like the other two locations, the entire menu is gluten-free (except for the occasional specials). AND, breakfast is served everyday at the DTLA Guisados. This is great news, and dangerous for my budget. I’ll probably need to supplement my weekly tacos with $1 Casa La Dona taco trips on Tuesdays. But, with delectable stewed taco meat on a handmade tortilla (to order), $2.75 is actually a bargain. The biggest issue is choosing which tacos.
