Out of Town Edition: California!

WAHOO'S FISH TACO (Costa Mesa)


beer battered maui onion rings. county fair worthy


blackened fish tacos. I have been eating at Wahoo's for about 20 years now! The original location was in my home town and now there are over 50.


#1 chicken taco with rice and black beans. white rice never tasted so good....for reals! i love it so much that i got a summer job at the huntington beach location back in the day.


TACO MESA (Costa Mesa)


they have an amazing salsa bar that includes the best escabeche ever that's filled with jalapenos, carrots, cauliflower and onion......mmmmmm


it was noon in birmingham


the usual suspects: carnitas and al pastor. They also do a crazy good burrito covered in sauce and crema.


MATSU (Huntington Beach)


sharing the teppan table


they have the same tricks at every one.


i'm not a fan of huge corporate restaurants but in this instance i gotta give it to benihana. however a with a cold beer and cold sake all is good.


IN-N-OUT


a true west coast gem. you don't know what you got till it's gone....


even the employees are super


i got so excited about my animal style french fries that i forgot to get a pic of my grilled cheese with extra tomato and grilled onions....holla!


JANS HEALTH BAR (Huntington Beach)



these are seriously the best chips ever. they have this wonderful soy essence and a mystery surrounding their origins.


soy turkey sandwich with the works! they have real meat too. OMG I want one of these right now.


delicious sides. Jan's also does fresh juice and insane salads that leave the table covered goodies


ALEXANDERS BRITE SPOT (Echo Park)


they had the nerve to be closed but this is an awesome late night eats spot.


BURRITO KING (Echo Park)


hallelujah


I have never eaten a hotter (temperature) taco in my life. After several whisky drinks it was a total tease to wait for them to cool. deliciouso



the king


love. one of the beautiful things about los angeles is that there are a million places like this that are all open late. rolled tacos with guac from benitos on beverly!!!


THE BEST FISH TACO IN ENSENADA (Los Feliz)


the best menu ever. lunch cost me 3 bucks


i love me a salsa bar!!!! my favorite here is the radish salsa


always


their website has better pictures of the wonderfully simple operation


under that pile of cabbage is 2 perfect fish tacos



there is a shortage of taco shells in new zealand.

ahhhhh.....home sweet home. I bet you are wondering.......is this girl going to turn into a taco.....maybe. It's just so hard to pass because I don't know when my next Taco Mesa taco is coming and it was kinda like vacation. Excuses aside, all these place are fantastic. If you are ever in the greater Los Angeles or Orange County area give em a try.
