Angelenos who find themselves on the opposite coast can get a taste of home at Cholo Noir, a Southern California–style Mexican joint in the East Village. Start with some chips and spicy guacamole ($10) or elotes, grilled street corn topped with mayo, chile, cojita cheese and lime ($5). The menu includes al pastor tacos named after Echo Park ($13 for three), beer-battered fish tacos a la San Diego ($5 each) and Venice Beach–style grilled shrimp tacos with pico de gallo ($5). Then there are Cholo Noir’s massive burritos stuffed with everything from vegetarian beans and cheese ($11) to carne asada, beans, pico de gallo, cojita cheese and avocado ($15). Wash it all down with one of the restaurants extra-large margaritas served in pint glasses or some creamy horchata ($4).
