The two "healthy Mexican" restaurants reviewed by Dara a couple years ago http://citypages.com/databank/26/1288... are both closed.
We drove by Café Limon a few weeks ago to find it gone and then checked out Natural Escape this weekend to find another empty storefront. I hope that one or both of these may turn up again somewhere. We really enjoyed the food.
Since Natural Escape was gone, we walked 50 yards south to La Concha, which has a greatly expanded menu since we last went there. They now have a huge menu painted on the wall in a very mexican style font and have of seafood and main dishes in addition to the taqueria items from before. It is still a very casual hole-in-the-wall order-at-the-counter place. I love that they have a bowl of pickled jalapenos, onions, garlic cloves, and carrots sitting at each table! Plus, when they bring out your order, they bring squeeze bottles with two types of salsa: a hot verde and an orangey colored stuff that I think of as a mexican version of "special sauce."
