Home to the most fertile tract of land in the country, Central Valley, Los Angeles food scene continues to bloom. Guisado, located in Boyle Heights, is currently making waves for its intrinsically Mexican fare. From tacos topped with tinga de pollo (spiced shredded chicken), spicy grilled fish with chilli diablo, and chicharon - made with black beans and slow-cooked pork scratchings: the menu is extensive and worth setting aside an afternoon to explore. The Kogi BBQ Truck became famous in 2008 when its blend of Mexican and Korean food, sold from five trucks that circled the city, earned a glowing reputation. The head chef, Roy Choi, won the prestigious accolade of best new chef in the US by Food and Wine Magazine. The trucks change location up to three times daily, so follow on Twitter to find their current locations. The highlight from the menu is unquestionably the Soy-marinated short rib tacos.
