There have been a few solid “best taco” lists in L.A. in recent years, including a beauty by local writer Joshua Lurie and Grub Street’s own exploration of the scene. But for true taco contentment, you really can’t get gooder than Gold. Following his best Mexican restaurant round-up, The L.A. Times critic drops science on thirteen recommended taco spots, offering some lesser known L.A. legends like the chasu tacos at Spirit House, fried shell tacos at J&S;, chicharrónes prensados at Tacos DF, and the tripas at La Carreta.
