The Boyle Heights taco institution, Guisados, launched into 2013 with a second taqueria in Echo Park. Handmade tortillas are made to-order and filled with the house signature (hence, its namesake) braised goodness. Snag a table on the outdoor patio or sit inside to watch the kitchen in action as you dig into the mouthwatering tacos ($2.75)—we like the moist tinga de pollo, rich and juicy mole poblano and flavorful cochinita pibil topped with spicy red onions—washed down with refreshingly tart jamaica aqua fresca or creamy, spiced horchata. Can’t decide what to order? The six-taco sampler offers two-bite tastes, while spice fanatics can’t miss the chiles toreados—it’s muy caliente.

It's a pretty casual taco place and is definitely something that's quick, easy, and in and out. They have a great 6 taco sampler! I highly recommend it as you can get a selection of everything! I don't exactly remember what I ordered, but I believe my photo shows it. You get to select the meats you wanted and I remember I got all except for chicken. They even hand make the tortilla, so that in itself is worth trying! The size of the tacos are quite small, so don't come here thinking you'll be too full!
It's all about the taco sampler platter, y'all. This amazing deal gets you six tacos and is the best way to explore Guisado's impressive menu. The tinga de pollo, pescado and chiles toreados are so so so good!
