33 Latino-Owned Businesses You Need to Know in Los Angeles
The Villegas family come from Puebla, Mexico and they provide the Poblanos in East LA with a piece of home. This lonchera is known for their tacos arabes which are on a pan arabe (thick flour tortilla) with marinated pork and a smoky and spicy chipotle sauce. But you can order them “especiales” which includes shredded quesillo and slices of avocado. The origin of the especiales is not from Puebla but a Villegas original recipe. An homage to when the matriarch, Merced, used to go door to door selling quesillo. Make sure to try the large and filling cemitas with strands of quesillo and cecina jutting out of the bread.
