While in California, what I really wanted was some good Mexican food. I scoured Urbanspoon and Yelp, and then followed up with my family. Luckily, my aunt Leticia had some suggestions. I trust her opinion and so this is where we ended up. A big win.
Good salsa and chips. See all the colorful little bits? That is one beautiful salsa.
Chiles Toritos: 4 yellow peppers stuffed with shrimp and cheese in a Worcestershire/lime sauce, garnished w/ onion and avocado.
Enchiladas Patrias: 3 different enchiladas: cheese, beef, & chicken, topped with 3 different sauces.
Carnitas: Oven roasted marinated pork "Jalisco Style" served with rice, beans, quacamole, and pico de gallo.
Everything was very good. The freshly-made corn tortillas definitely deserve a shout-out. Fonda Don Chon serves delicious, classic Mexican food.
