33 Latino-Owned Businesses You Need to Know in Los Angeles
Chef Tirsa Nevarez infuses her bubbly personality into the entire menu at Tirsa’s, her neighborhood Mexican restaurant on the outskirts of Chinatown. While you could certainly order a sope made with Hot Cheetos, don’t sleep on the wonderful breakfast offerings. The Noa Noa is a massive burrito that’s filled with soyrizo, potatoes, turkey bacon, and cheese. But the star of the show at Tirsa’s is the chipotle lime chicken, with flavorful chicken that’s cooked in a smoky, spicy, and acidic sauce, and can be ordered as a plate or burrito.
