MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

La Azteca is an easy restaurant to find. Just look for the line of people snaking out of its front door. This modest counter-service operation has been serving hefty burritos from East LA for many years now. What’s their secret? Flour tortillas are made in-house every day in full view of the dining room and boast a kind of richness and chew that others don’t. There are nearly 20 different burritos on offer, but everyone comes for the winning chile relleno. The tortilla is cooked on a griddle and then filled—not stuffed—with slivers of sweet poblano peppers and gooey cheese. There’s hot sauce if you want it (you do) and a to-go bag if you need it (you won’t).
Tacos and quesadillas are also available but certainly not the main attraction.
