Sinaloan Cuisine

Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the LA Weekly.  This week, he is taking us to the South Gate-area for Sinaloan cuisine.  Sinaloa is a Mexican state on the Pacific Coast.  He likes chilorio (bright orange, cumin and chile stewed pork) and Sinaloan machaca (dried beef that’s grilled, then pounded in a mortar and crisply fried) at El Sinaloense in Huntington Park. He also recommends Cenaduria Gumacus Sinaloa Grill in South Gate, where he samples smoky marlin quesadillas, machaca and cheese-stuffed enchiladas a la Sinaloense.
