Just about to leave San Jose and have decided to take a leisurely drive down either 101 or the PCH to LA. Will stop somewhere midway tonight. I would like to explore/take my time and I find restaurant destinations a good way to do that.
One of my interests lately has been mariscos, Mexican seafood. Would love suggestions along either of these routes for places serving things such as ceviche, cocteles, sarandeados, molcajetes, caldos, and so on -- or even non-west coast Mexican seafood options.
I couldn't find much searching, unfortunately.
Even if you can point me to towns and neighborhoods that seem like they have a concentration of Mexican restaurants and taquerias making food for 1st gen Mex-Americans, that would great. Love interesting produce stands, fish markets, and so on.
I will probably take one of these ways back from LA, too, unless I opt for 99, so while it'd be great to get quick recs, please keep them coming for tomorrow and next week.
