Down Casa Cooking – I am hooked. I work around the corner and went for dinner one time and ordered the Enchilada Hermosa which is a seafood enchilada. I am an amateur gourmet cook and love to try something new both in a restaurant and cuisine wise. I took one bite, let it sit on my tongue to see what flavors stuck out and nothing stuck out...it was a glorious well blended dish where you tasted everything. Their salsa (with the chips) is a bit on the spicy side but you can tell that it along with the enchilada I enjoyed were made homemade by loving hands that truly express love towards food and is passed onto the diner. The place may look like a hole in the wall from the outside, but once you enter the tiny little door, you have been transported to a world of magic where you can either sit in a lovely patio that transports you to the casas of Mexico or dine inside where the windows that can be opened overlook a postage stamp size neighborhood park and beyond that the Pacific Ocean where it is easy to imagine yourself setting in the many casas on the Mexico coast. Forget the big Mexican Restaurant chains where things are made cookie cutter style but enjoy true cooking. Prices are excellently inexpensive as well.
The Perfect Restaurant – This has been one of my favorite restaurants in L.A. for about the last 15 years. Perfect location right next to the beach, unbelievable food, fantastic service, great sangria, all served up in a really casual atmosphere without a bit of pretension. I wouldn't change a thing about this place. Try the huevos rancheros for breakfast or enchilladas hermosa for lunch or dinner. And did I mention the sangria?
User review by paggie – My family and I were on vacation from Missouri and we stopped in for a bite to eat before we headed to the beach. We were seated immeadiately, the servers were great on helping us choose what to order. We were greatly inpressed the food was excelent and the price was very affordable. Being so close to the beach made it very enjoyable, I highly recomend this resturant.
Best Breakfast – This is a great place to have breakfast. The Machaca is to die for, very happy and friendly staff. Setting is right on the beach, perfect for sunny days! Great beach restaurant with prices to match!
