When Lotería opened in the center of the Original Farmers Market in 2002, tacos were the basis of the freestanding stall. Since then, chef and owner Jimmy Shaw's burgeoning empire has grown to Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade, Hollywood, Studio City and Westlake Village. However, at each location, tacos continue to star: Tinga de pollo ($3.50) gets a dose of housemade chorizo, while carnitas ($3.50) showcase a spicy and smoky chile Morita sauce. Probaditas ($16) are a great way to sample Lotería's variety with 12 different tacos on mini corn tortillas.
