More restaurants to try: Mexican

I've been neglecting Mexican food lately, as I usually feel like going Asian. But there are a few places I've been hearing about that I'd like to try. Here's the rundown:
La Parrilla - for some reason, I've never been to this East L.A. institution, but I've heard the things to get are the guacomole, the queso fundido con chorizo, and the grilled meats.
2126 E. Caesar Chavez Ave.
Mi India Bonita -- everything, I guess
4731 E. Olympic
Tacos Baja Ensenada -- fish tacos!
5385 Whittier Blvd.
Mercado La Paloma - tacos at Taqueria Vista Hermosa
3655 S. Grand Ave.
Gallo's Grill - grilled steak and chicken
4533 E. Cesar Chavez

La Parrilla - for some reason, I've never been to this East L.A. institution, but I've heard the things to get are the guacomole, the queso fundido con chorizo, and the grilled meats.Hmmmmm - I was just there yesterday (2nd visit) and have these comments for consideration:

* Do NOT park in their dinkie parking lot. Opt for street parking, as horrible as that may be. My hubby's brand new car now as a ding in it, and let me add - Mercedes parts aren't cheap.

* Queso fundido: You might as well fill a bowl with grease and fill the other half with cheese/chorizo. It was THAT greasy. I just had queso fundido in Vegas (Venetian:Canonita - high recommended) and it was so delightful. La Parilla's version only got me to eat one bite. So sad.

Stick with the quac. At least that's safe.

Amapola Mexican Grill in Downey for the best fish & shrimp tacos hands down. Tacos Baja Ensenada is a close second.
