7 Flautas You’ll Want to Try at Flautas, Now Open at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza


Jaime Martin Del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu, the talented chefs behind what may be LA's most important Mexican restaurant, La Casita Mexicana in Bell, today debut their fast-casual ode to a traditional Western Mexican dish with Flautas. For an in-depth discussion of the concept, check out this interview with Jaime and Ramiro from last year on Food GPS.


Located in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw food court adjacent to their full-service restaurant Mexicano (which opens next month), Flautas is a quick option with a pretty impressive sounding menu. Keep reading for the full description of some of the 14 different flautas offered...


· El Mercado, filled with chicken, Mexican crema, spicy tomatillo sauce, and topped with cotija cheese, inspired by Mercado Corona in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico

· De Papa con Chorizo Hecho en Casa (Traditional Potato and Homemade Chorizo), topped with tomato, onion, guajillo chile, cheese, and chile de árbol sauce

· De Rajas de Chile Poblano con Queso (Poblano Chile Strips With Cheese), a Jalisco tradition that also includes potato, Mexican crema, and spicy green tomatillo sauce

· De Picadillo de Res (Beef Picadillo), slowly cooked beef stuffing with tomato, onion, and garlic, perfumed with oregano

· Norteñas (Northern Style), made with a flour tortilla stuffed with pork that has been cooked with almonds, raisins, and spices, traditional to Northern Mexico

· De Pollo con Mole Verde o Mole Poblano (Chicken with Green Mole or Mole Poblano), shredded chicken filling smothered in Jaime and Ramiro’s legendary Green Mole or Mole Poblano

· Cochinita Pibil, filled with roasted pork shoulder meat marinated with achiote bitter orange juice and spices
