La Flor De Yucatan is a Mayan bakery in Pico-Union serving Yucatan baked goods and tacos that have no business being this excellent. Just don’t plan to stay too long - this tiny shop is order-at-the-counter and only has a few tables to go around. Your order is the relleno negro taco: turkey meat that’s been braised in a mixture of spices, seeds, and chiles that make it unlike anything else in town.
