  1. You might try Border Grill in Santa Monica. They usually do something fun.

    1. What about putting a picnic of your favs together and go on a tour of the Hollywood Cemetary???

      1. I'm about to head out to the event at the Hermon Park, just off the 110, at the Via Marisol exit. I stopped by earlier to look at the altars going up, which look great, and noticed that Huaraches Azteca was setting up a booth, as well as another, small-scale huarache/pupusa operation, the comal was just heating up. There looked to be space for a number of additional vendors, this promises to be a pretty outstanding event.

          This sounds great. Will it still be going on, the end of next week ???

            Sorry, just saw your message. You probably have about 20 min! My discovery was a pombazo from Huaraches Azteca, basically a torta roll dipped in their amazing roasted red chile and pregrilled, then stuffed with carne asada etc. I don't think anything can top their huaraches, but the pombazo is a great alternative. I can't remember seeing it on the menu at the restaurant, but I may have missed it.
