Given the Latin America culture found so prominently in Southern California, tacos have become a way of life for most residents. More importantly though, every Tuesday, “Taco Tuesday” commences, and if you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was like a weekly Christmas for some Mexican food aficionados. People pile into taquerias in droves to sample an assortment of tacos and to imbibe in, what else, margaritas. So where should you pile into this Tuesday?

Who knew Taco Tuesday could be so HEALTHY!? Celeb hotspot and a mecca for vegans, Gracias Madre is sooo LA, which we love, of course.
