New tastes in Boyle Heights

Boyle Heights is a hub of taco production. Carne asada, cabeza, chorizo; every stand offers the usual meat options. In this land of plenty, what makes a taco stand out?  Meanwhile, Viva Los Cupcakes has invented cupcakes with a Mexican flair, with flavors like tamale con mole and Margarita. And the Beat talked with owners of local spots that go beyond the average taco.  “[At first], locals didn’t come in because they were intimidated by the more affluent clientele the restaurant attracted. But things have changed, and the business now draws customers from Boyle Heights and all over the Los Angeles area.” The faces of the evolving food scene, on Boyle Heights Beat.
