UPDATE! May 7th 2014: La Jolla has moved! Same great food! Different location! See below for the new address and access details!
Many thanks to Ted Taylor for introducing me to this great Californian-style Mexican restaurant yesterday afternoon.
Below is yesterday’s lunchtime menu. Pretty meaty as you can see, but you can also get vegetarian versions of all these items.
Ted went for the chicken tacos plate.
And I plumped for a veggie version of the burrito special.
I’m getting hungry just looking at these pictures again. It was really good and I really want to go back and try the evening dinner menu which has lots of fish and shrimp options.
The interior decor is bright and cheerful.
And this too is not a bad thing:
But other than the great tasting food what I really liked about this place was the owner’s cheerful smile. It really makes a difference when people are friendly. I’ll definitely be back!
