Ray Garcia's B.S. Taqueria is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the stomach. Located on Seventh Street downtown, which has become L.A.'s new restaurant row, the convenient taqueria combines established traditions with contemporary flair. Try the spicy mushroom and garlic tacos — sometimes they come on blue corn tortillas, sometimes yellow corn. Chomp on lemon-pepper chicken chicharrones or house-made duritos (puffed wheat cracker with chili-lime and habanero hot sauce) while you sip one of the many margarita choices. My favorite is a healthy dose of Pinacillin, made with reposado tequila, pineapple, lemon, agave, ginger and mezcal. The "rice and beans," one of the most popular items on the menu, is made with toasted rice, garbanzos, cannellini beans, cotija and Fresno chilies. A native Eastside Angeleno, Garcia graduated from UCLA and went on to elevate the kitchens at FIG and the Peninsula Beverly Hills. In addition to B.S. Taqueria, Garcia is also chef and owner of his flagship Broken Spanish downtown. He's also active with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. B.S. Taqueria also has a stand in Staples Center for a quick bite. —Michele Stueven
