    Hi Katerina! For tex-mex, my top choice would be Bar Ama. They have some of the best queso in L.A.! Also, be sure to order their "off menu" puffy tacos:

    For a great value and amazing Mexican food check out La Barca Restaurant off Vermont near USC. One of the best Mexican restaurants in LA. It's not fancy smancy but the food is off the hook. If you are up to explore more flavorful Mexican options head to Guisados in East Los Angeles. Also a must before you leave is Porto's Bakery Downey, off Firestone Ave., in Downey, it's not Mexican but Cuban food at its best. You will thank me later. Buen provecho!

    Hi Katerina!


    I love Border Grill for a great happy hour and Guelaguetza Restaurant for Oaxacan. Also, there's a new Red O Restaurant in Santa Monica to check out. If you're feeling adventurous, check out Gracias Madre for vegan Mexican and creative cocktails.


    Cheers!

    Bar Ama. Upscale elevated tex-mex. They say they have a puffy taco but it might be on the "secret" menu because it's not on the written one. Fun atmosphere - crowded so make a res if you can.
