Tacos Quetzalcoatl splits its time between downtown (on weekdays, at Central Ave & 8th St.) and East LA (on weekends, at Olympic and Kern), and wins the award for best vegetarian street tacos in the city. You simply won’t find a better meatless taco in LA than Quetzalcoatl’s Taco Omega-2. If you are looking for meat, their lamb barbacoa is tremendous, and if you ask, they’ll fry cheese right into the side of tortilla.
