There are two key reasons why Tlayuda L.A. is a must-go when on the hunt for tlayudas. The first is the women-owned restaurant’s commitment to making everything from scratch, whether it’s their delicious moles, tortillas, frijoles, or even agua frescas. You can even get a stove-top Mexican coffee for when you wander in half-asleep searching for a Oaxacan breakfast. The second reason is that it’s one of the few (if not only) Oaxacan places that offers plenty of vegan and vegetarian options for you or your non-meat-eating friends. This even applies to their tlayudas, with their vegetarian version - which nixes the asiento (a.k.a the unrefined pork lard) - showcasing an assortment of sauteed bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini squash, along with more of the fantastic bean paste.
