The Find: Guisados taqueria in Boyle Heights
Ricardo Diaz is on his way to building a culinary empire. Three years ago, Diaz and his in-laws opened Cook's Tortas in Monterey Park. There, sturdy, rustic rolls are baked on-site, everyone sips pineapple-celery and watermelon-mint aguas frescas and dessert brings soft corn cakes and biscuits smeared with loquat marmalade. Now comes Guisados, the new Boyle Heights taqueria from Diaz and business partner Armando De La Torre. Here, guisados achieve ascendancy; these are humble stews and braises that you'd otherwise most likely find simmering atop a home stove. What's next from Diaz?
