Introducing LA OTRA

Sad news to report. Colonia Tacos Guisados on Whittier Blvd is permanently closed. It was a great little place while it lasted but it looks like Chef Ricardo has his hands full opening up the Whittier Brewing Company in Uptown Whittier. But when one door closes another door opens and that void is going to be filled by LA OTRA another great taco spot. The great news is the owner is the brother Of Jay Arroyo owner of Phlight and the Deli Up! So you know we will be in good hands. They will be up and running by the end of February so stay tuned!
