Among all the food options you might find, good Mexican food is one of the best.
Memories of Mexico full of flavour.
The older people in this part of the United States will tell you that La Golondrina was the first Mexican restaurant to open its doors to the public in this city. Whether or not this be true, the establishment is based in a building which dates from 1855, in Pueblo de Los Angeles, 17 Olvera Street. Its cuisine is among the most notable in the area, and it is well known for its ranch egg breakfasts. It is advisable to go early, as it tends to get busy and it closes at 10 pm. With 25 years of experience, Ensenada Restaurant & Bar (www.ensenadarestaurant.net) is another classic from Downtown LA. Situated on 517 South Spring Street, its specialities include vegetarian and sea food dishes, as well as traditional mexican food. It also offers many cocktails and fruits from the south of the continent, such as margaritas, daiquiris, piña coladas, melons, or guayabas. El Cholo (www.elcholo.com) opened its doors in 1923, on 1121 South Western Avenue. Its star dishes are typically Mexican, such as fajitas, nachos, and enchiladas, with the option of a unique version of the margarita cocktail, one of the most famous in the centre of Los Angeles.
