This is a new place (has been open for 4 months) on Lincoln (next to Brennan's Bar). Went there for dinner last night for the first time and was greeted with KISSES by a very friendly host/waiter/owner. The place was virtually empty (just another table of four people). The friendly owner brought us a delicious tamale as an appetizer (on the house). We ordered a veggie burrito ($9.95) and fish tacos ($11.95). Both dishes were great - fresh and tasty. Chips and salsa were great too. The owner presented us with a complimentary dessert (creme brulee), which was delicious, but at that point I was too full to finish it. Overall, a wonderful experience. I highly recommend for people on the West Side to try this place, as we want to help them stay in business (and from the look of it on a Saturday night, they don't seem to be doing that well).

      Just had my first meal at Talapazola (sp ?) - Venice Blvd, just N/E of Abbot Kinney - it could not have been better. The food was unique and absolutely fabulous, service and decor were great. Huevos Rancheros were not on the menu, but they happily took my order and turned out the best ever.
