It seems that most people still don’t know that one of the best Mexican restaurants in LA (La Casita Mexicana) opened up a sister restaurant in Baldwin Hills. Well, they did and it’s great. The big space is modern and festive, with many of the classic dishes from La Casita making it onto the menu here. Their 4-8pm Happy Hour is easily the best in the area.
Mexicano is permanently closed.
