3700 N. Figueroa St. ~ Highland Park (TACO Map)

Great, simple Mexican food with enough spiciness to keep almost anyone satisfied. Generous portions hit the table at this famous local's spot where all are welcome. The counter display of vintage 3 Stooges ephemera alongside a world currency collection alone make La Abeja worth entering.

Recommended is the Chile Verde-- tasty chunks of beef in a vibrant but not overpowering sauce that comes hot and bright green to your table. Also exceptional is the carne adobada, delicious pork in a rich, dense sauce with various intense spices vying for supremacy. The kitchen is clean and open, take a look and say hi to the people making some of the neighborhood's best.
