In a little shack located at the end of Olvera street just a few blocks away from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles one can find some of the crispiest, most sumptuous Taquitos around. Located in a ramshackle structure at the end of a vibrant and bustling street market, the Cielito Lindo has been feeding Los Angelinos since 1938.
Despite offering only a limited menu of taquitos, tamales, chile rellenos, and burritos and being surrounded by numerous other Mexican restaurants, there are always people waiting in line.
One taste of the taquitos dipped in Cielito Lindo's avocado sauce and you'll see why. These crispy little wonders positively brim with flavor, their crispy corn exterior virtually explodes in crunchy goodness when bitten while the tender spicy beef adds a delightful textural contrast to the shell.
