Salazar is a taco and craft beer destination located in Frogtown, a neighborhood located between Silver Lake and Glendale. Their Northern Mexican-style handmade flour tortillas have earned them quite the reputation amongst taco connoisseurs. Their large, open outdoor patio is part of the restaurant’s charm – it offers an inviting and desert-like dining experience that will make you feel like you traveled outside of Los Angeles.
