I mean, I guess that’s what it’s called. As I didn’t love it, and can’t seem to find an appropriate picture online to snatch, I will make this what I call a “Review Spurt”.
I actually forgot that I went here for Cinco de Mayo last week. Not, perhaps, the beginning of a glowing review.
I met a friend out who I had been dogsitting for and she was with some ladies I know (several of which I went to Italy with a few years ago) This restaurant replaced the old Benvenuto Cafe which I remember always served their pasta dishes in big bowls.
It’s now been painted bright colors. Mostly bright pink. I just read a blurb online that it’s supposed to be 1950′s Mexico. Cute idea. However, read on.
I had one beer. Pacifico. Write that down.
I had one bite of a taco. However, as this bite pretty much finished the petite taco, I would say it more belonged on Barbie’s kitchen table. It was quite tasty however. It was a steak taco. Keep writing.
The menu was brief and expensive and portions were miniscule. I’m not a fan of the small plates craze that has taken over LA the past few years, at least not when the prices do not match.
You know what though? I actually might go back, the food was so tasty. I’ve kind of mellowed since the beginning of this post.
