Guisados Will Soon Transform West Hollywood's Pitiful Taco Scene

The taco chainlet takes over the short-lived Gangnam Pocha on Santa Monica Blvd.

Rejoice, West Hollywood fans, because a very good taco place is finally headed your way in the form of Guisados, the celebrated Eastside taco spot with outlets in Downtown, Echo Park, and Boyle Heights. This ABC notice shows a quick changeover from Gangnam Pocha, which was nestled right next to The Horn (which also closed after just a few months).

No word on the projected opening date, but with a completely built out and food-ready interior, it's hard to see this taking more than few months, unless Guisados wants to impress the locals on their design skills. More likely, taco fiends will be more than happy enough  that someone's finally doing some hand-pressed tortillas in the neighborhood.
