tasteless taquitos

Cielito Lindo
23 Olvera Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(213) 687-4391

price: $
verdict: not worth my time.

i've gone here thrice to try their taquitos. first time it was because of the long lines and i wanted to check out the hype. the second time because i forgot that i didn't like it and was too hungry to forage for food elsewhere. the third time because my friend wanted to eat there and i didn't want to burst her bubble. i left with the same verdict each and every time though: the taquitos ain't so good. the taquitos are fried, but they aren't the crunchy fried kind either. once in your mouth, the texture isn't pleasant. the beef tasted bland, leading me to think that it was just the stage for the real highlight of the meal, the intriguing avocado sauce. i think it's a bit overpriced for what it's worth but i give it 3 stars because i haven't tasted anything else on the menu except for the taquitos and chile relleno which was pretty good.
