 This upscale Mexican eatery in West Hollywood prepares its guac tableside with locally sourced avocados, pomegranate seeds, lime pepitas, jalapeño and cilantro, served with house-made crispy plantain chips.  8450 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048



You’ll be eating at not only an L.A. landmark, but an institution when you dine at El Cholo, which has been opened since 1923. Their guac, served tableside and made from Hass avocados, is fresh, delicious and flavorful.
