Who Ate Hispanic Food Tonight? This a BF'er?

I was at a Hispanic joint tonight. This dude walked in and ordered Hispanic food to go. I thought maybe he was a forum dude. Not sure but he looked familiaroso!

Was this you?

I was busy taking pictures of a Vitus that belongs to a Hispanic friend of mine. Nice vintage bike all Campy. We were at his Hispanic bikeshop next to the Hispanic taco stand. I asked him if he had any Hispanic handlebars in stock but he didn't.

Hispanic yes, but Los Sanchez.
Besides, Beanz knows what I look like . . . (yeah, 30+ years older than the guy in the photo!).

We had Hispanic food for dinner last night at our Spanish styled home. My wife is Hispanic so I'm forced to eat Spanish food at least 3 nights out the week... ...but in all honesty, I prefer to eat Japanese food....and so does my wife...

After riding 32 miles in the Hollywood Hills in 100 degree heat all I could eat was diet ice tea. I guess I just rode my appetite into the ground. I have never had Hispanic food, but I like Mexican food-Don Cuco!

Don Cuco's is not bad. I've also enjoyed Casa Vega, but more for the kitsch factor. Mexicali is only good for meeting singles, not the food.

Problem is that I like pristine restaurants and to be truly authentic, you need a little grunge in the environment.

I've had mixed results at Casa Vega, but agree that the ambiance is nice. That is, once you've managed to pick yourself up off the floor, and your eyes adjust.

Agree all around on Mexicali. The food doesn't even seem mexican... more like "typical bar food, severd (named) in the general direction of the border".

A friend of mine swears by a small, authentic place a few blocks north of Hugo's... can't remember the name now. I'll find out. edit: Tony's at Coldwater and Magnolia.

I like the Sombrero's taco shop that's wedged into the back of the local Shell station.


ps. Is there a difference between Mexican, Guatamalan, Panamanian, El Salvadorian, and Honduran food? If so, then all you people talking about Hispanic food are going to hell.

We definitely must include a stop behind the car wash at the corner of Santa Monica Bl and Gower. They serve the best tacos...

The one in that little alley/street behind the Westin/Thrifty Rental cars in LAX (off of Century) is the bomb diggity. When I was a flight attendant, I used to stop there at 11pm right before checking in to work the Guadalajara all-nighter. Ahh, fond memories.

On a side note, I had El Pollo Loco for lunch today in El Monte. Ahhh, two "el's in one sentence. Can't beat that!!

Hey alicestrong - we gotta do lunch sometime! I'm working full-time in El Monte now!

I used to love the taco carts in Tijauna. Tacos and little bottles of Coke or Carte Blanca.
