For well over 20 years, La Abispa has been an LA staple, offering a unique twist on snack time that makes snack time into a bona fide meal. Both savory and sweet have full rosters of players ready to make their mark on your tongue, from hot cheetos doused in cheese to chili-dusted sorbet. Mexican treats dominate a menu that might be imposing to outsiders but is actually quite accessible in practice. Maybe too accessible really. As in, you might not be able to help yourself from turning snack time into meal time daily. Of course, there really are worse fates. If your appetite's getting abducted, it might as well get abducted by a classic like La Abispa. Call it California pride, if you really need an excuse.
