In the past dozen years or so, L.A. has become a world center of regional Mexican cuisine. Still, for some reason, restaurants serving the food of the Distrito Federal, the region encompassing Mexico City, have been rare around here until recently. On East Olympic, there is a restaurant advertising "Antojitos del D.F." in 2-foot-high letters. Antojitos del D.F. are what it serves: leathery quesadillas folded over a stew of squash blossoms thickened with melted cheese; huge, plate-flat huaraches stuffed with pureed beans and topped with cream, shredded lettuce, fresh cheese, and salty, carbonized nubs of marinated pork; and crisp chorizo sandwiches called pambazos. Although the tacos and sopes tend not to be up to the level of the rest of the food, the tortillas were made to order.
