BOYLE HEIGHTS – If a taco is so big that you have to eat it with a fork, doesn’t it become something other than a taco?
Whatever they’re making at Los Cinco Puntos in Boyle Heights, LA Weekly describes a plus-sized taco that’s more meal than snack: Thick, homemade tortillas layered with meat, guacamole, salsa and nopales – for about three bucks.
In fact, the hallmark of Los Cinco Puntos seems to be delicious food in bulk – often ordered to go: A guacamole gallon, a tortilla tower, $30 for two dozen enchiladas, $16.99 for a dozen tamales, $28 for enough rice and beans to feed 60 people.
Los Cinco Puntos is located in the 3300 block of E. Cesar Chavez in Boyle Heights.
