La Colonia area, Oxnard

  • s

I was in Oxnard this morning and strayed off my path into La Colonia (Colonia Rd & Cooper Rd. off Oxnard Blvd) and dang if I wasn't suddenly in....Mexico!!

My heart leapt with delight to see the signs - Nieves! Licuados! Raspados! Carnicerias and Mercados...little restaurants...shops with open fronts...

It was between meals, but I can't wait to go back. Has anyone eaten there?

      1. Palomas on Cooper Rd has great, tasty echiladas! La Central on Meta St is cool bakery, tambien. I was born Colonia...good luck!

        1. Many years ago in another lifetime I used to like a little place called El Napolito, just east of Oxnard Blvd on about 6th or 7th St. Don't even know if it is still there.
