Eye Nosh: Mexican, from Olvera to Olive
Yesterday it was (the best) taquitos (in the city) from an Olvera Street stand; today it is flautas from an upscale Downtown restaurant, as photographed by LAist Featured Photos contributor hinducow. Normal flautas these are not -- try this on for California size: they are Chicken flautas filled with avacado from Noe at the Omni Hotel on Olive Street.
So what's the difference between a taquito and a flauta? Mainly, it depends on being made with a corn or flour tortilla, respectively. However, traditions in different areas around Mexico may show variations of that definition.
