El Tepeyac Cafe

El Tepeyac Cafe
Address: 812 N Evergreen Ave, Los Angeles, CA‎ 90063
Phone: (213) 268-1960‎
Known For: Mexican Food
What I had: Carne Asada Taco, Pollo Fried Taco & Tortilla Chips
Price: $9.55
Rating: 8 out of 10

This place was slightly difficult to find but once I searched it out it was well worth the pursuit. It has become very popular and with that hard to park and it takes a little to get seated, this is not a bad thing as there is good reason for this. I was able to grab a spot at the bar so the wait actually wasn’t too long for me for expect a line during lunch.

They’re known for their massive Manuel Special Burrito which I witnessed but did not partake in. It looks like it could feed about 5 hungry people. There menu consists of your typical Mexican fare, burritos, taquitos, tacos, enchiladas, etc. A couple interesting things to note “Burritos can be made up to 6 feet long when ordered 24hrs. in advance deposit required for boards/refundable upon of board with receipt.” They also have a special Lent menu that has items such as Taqullos De Papa (potato taquitos served with rice & beans) or Fajitas De Eamoron (shrimp with grilled onion, tomato, jalapeno & colored bell pepper served with rice, beans & tortillas).

I ordered two tacos, one carne asada, which was your basic corn tortilla taco, and one pollo, which was deep fried. The carne asada was easily one of the best tacos I’ve ever had. The meat was beyond words, it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Piled high as can be, it really should have been two tacos. The onions and cilantro were the perfect accompaniments and just the right amount.

The pollo on the otherhand was sub-par, the chicken was somewhat gamey, it was shredded and there was about 4 times the amount of cheese then needed to be. Had I not order this abomination I would have had a much much higher opinion of El Tepeyac. The chips were good and they served a green and a red salsa, both were good but nothing to write home about.

The staff was great, service was quick and the place was pretty clean. I would drive far far out of my way for another 0f those carne asada tacos and I suggest you do the same.
