If the $3 price tag doesn’t sway you toward Tacos Villa Corona, then maybe Anthony Bourdain’s stamp of approval will; he stopped in on an episode of The Layover and had nothing but good things to say. Served out of a literal hole in the wall, this cash- and daytime-only Atwater Village staple has a consistent line, but don’t let that stop you. Freshly stewed nopales, sautéed spinach, steamy potatoes, melty cheese and house-made, actually-spicy hot sauce come together in legitimate harmony, making Tacos Villa Corona beyond worth the wait.
There are a few dishes that define the food scene in L.A.: Everybody can agree that we’re a town with the best tacos, many agree that we’ve got some of the best burgers and anyone not from New York can agree that we’re home to some of the best pizza. But there’s another thing that Angelenos hold dear: breakfast burritos. Like burgers, tacos and pizza, there’s always a debate surrounding the city’s best tortilla-wrapped morning food. Head to these great spots to find your own die-hard favorite.
