la taquiza

so i am on my way to pick up food for a meeting, and my stomach is already growling in anticipation of the grindz that i'm going to get at la taquiza (not to be confused with the horrible tequila-beer combo...that's tequiza ).
Located near USC on Figueroa, a few blocks north of jefferson, in the corner spot of the mini-mall that also has a yoshinoya, on the surface, La Taquiza looks like your standard taqueria. but it's not. they have a pretty full menu including the standard burritos, tacos, enchiladas, etc. but for the uninitiated, i would definitely try the mulitas. Basically a mulita is about the size of a taco, but it's made with two thick grilled corn tortillas (similar to those used for the huaraches mentioned earlier), which sandwich meat of your choice, cheese, and guacamole. YUM. my description really does the mulitas no justice. suffice it to say, i first ate here about 4 weeks ago..and have been back 4 times since! (and tonight will be my first).

the mulitas go for about $2 each.

they also have really good quesadillas which can be made with your choice of meat as well, and some of the BEST horchata ever.

i think they're open relatively late (maybe 10pm-ish...) but that needs to be verified.
edit it's mulIta, not mulEta. my bad.

grant: i went in and inserted a picture of the mulitas to your post. it's high-time for you to pick up your new camera phone and start posting pix!!!

BTW: the mulitas were pretty tasty, but really messy. how are you supposed to eat them, anyway? they're like a grilled cheese and meat-of-your-choice sandwich with 2 semi-thick tortillas as the bread. too thick to cut through easily w/ plastic knife and form, and too floppy and open on the ends to pick up and eat like a sandwich. i think next time i'll try a burrito from their very impressive/expansive menu. oh, and the horchata was delish!
