Mixto, Silver Lake LA

A few weeks ago some friends and I headed to Mixto for a quick lunch. The place is simple and charming- it’s all painted bright green, and is like an open-air eating nook, filled with benches and barstools. We ordered at the counter, and received our food promptly. The horchata was delicious, as were the plaintains; the crema on them was amazing, and this was definitely my favourite dish of the meal. The tacos were all good- I think I was expecting them to have a little more flair due to the ingredients list on the menu, but they were good nonetheless. The tortillas were sturdy and didn’t break under the weight of the toppings, but they were too filling! They definitely overtook the tacos. All in all, Mixto is a good place to go when you need food that is healthy, good and fast (and vegan friendly!), but not necessarily one I’d go out of my way to revisit. Except for those plantains…
