"Experience the Crunch, Juiciness, and Tradition of Los Dorados' Iconic Flautas – Where Every Bite Tells a Story."

Nestled in the heart of culinary excellence, Los Dorados, led by Estiven Orozco Torres, has mastered the art of creating flautas that transcend the ordinary. From the first pull out of the fryer to the last satisfying crunch, each tortilla is meticulously crafted to deliver a taste of Mexico City's authentic flavors.

The Flauta Revelation: A Mexico City Delight

Estiven Orozco Torres takes pride in presenting a Mexico City-style flauta that goes beyond the ordinary. The tortilla, fried to perfection, is a testament to the culinary expertise that runs through generations. Its fluffiness and delightful bubbliness serve as a prelude to the amazing crunch that halts conversations, leaving diners captivated.

Saucy Elegance: The Mexico City Twist

The distinctive Mexico City style flauta at Los Dorados embraces sauciness as a virtue. Bathed in cream and adorned with guacamole-based green salsa and a touch of red sauce, these flautas redefine the culinary experience. The addition of cotija cheese provides a finale of saltiness and cheesiness, creating a symphony of flavors that dance on the taste buds.

Customer Testimonial:

"You taste everything, it's full of spice, it has sazon. I personally like all of the toppings. I like the green salsa, the sour cream, and the cheese on top, it tastes amazing. Just you can't find it anywhere else."

The Lamb Barbacoa Legacy: Texcoco's Culinary Heritage

Los Dorados' lamb barbacoa pays homage to the culinary heritage of Texcoco, the home state of Estiven's father-in-law. Rooted in ancestral recipes, this lamb barbacoa undergoes a meticulous process involving blue weber agave leaves, avocado leaves, various spices, and a 12-hour steam. The result is a succulent masterpiece that transcends gaminess.

Customer Interaction:

"Man, these are crispy delicious."

Chipotle Chicken Tinga: A Symphony of Freshness

The chipotle chicken tinga at Los Dorados is a testament to freshness and flavor balance. The stewing process, infused with chipotle, tomatoes, onions, bay leaves, and select spices, creates a tinga that is both juicy and vibrant. The thigh meat adds an element of succulence, ensuring each bite is a culinary delight.

The Charola Chronicles: Frying with Tradition

Central to Los Dorados' culinary legacy is the charola, the pan used to fry these delectable flautas. Passed down through generations, this sacred pan is specifically crafted for the art of frying flautas. Its history is rich, with each service's oil contributing to a mother oil that imparts a unique flavor to every batch.

Estiven's Insight:

"Our charola specifically has been used with our family for generations. Every time we start our service, we use a little bit of each previous service's oil, so we can keep that flavor each and every time that we fry flautas in it. It's like the mother oil that we've been using since the beginning."

Los Dorados: A Culinary Journey Inspired by Love

The inception of Los Dorados was a moment of revelation for Estiven Orozco Torres. A chance encounter with his father-in-law's flautas at a baptism ignited a passion to share this culinary treasure with the world. Stemming from one of the first Taqueiros in LA, Los Dorados is a testament to a family recipe that spans over five decades, showcasing the authenticity and tradition embedded in every bite.

Crystal Lee's Reaction:

"These are hands down the best flautas I've ever had in my life and quite possibly the best flautas I will ever have."

In every sizzle, every aroma, and every bite, Los Dorados weaves a tale of tradition, passion, and culinary excellence. As the lines grow and the reputation soars, the legacy of Los Dorados continues to unfold, promising an unforgettable experience for every patron fortunate enough to savor their iconic flautas.
