Re:Los Angeles Mexican food?
The original El Cholo is on Western near I10. During the right months you can get excellent green corn tamales. Theoretically (with the magic of freezing) the green corn tamales could be served all year long but El Cholo guarantees a few months of good business by limiting the time available.
The have another location on Wilshire Bl in Santa Monica.
I find the rest of their food good, but not outstanding.
