Went to Ano Nuevo SP to check out the elephant seals. Tip: don't need reservations just go before 9am and get tickets same day. parking $10; tickets $7pp (Thanks Ruth). Perfect weather this past Sun 1/31/10. Winter is usually great on the coast.
Then went to check out that Taqueria inside Alliance Gasoline in Pescadero. Heard about it, just never noticed it or walked in. It's on Pescadero Rd @ Stage Rd, across from the famous Duarte's Tavern right on the corner.
Inside the taqueria is small, but there's a bunch of booths & some 2-top table. Small salsa bar too.
FREE chips & salsa (at salsa bar) - help yourself.
Regular lengua burrito. Beans, rice, salsa, & tender lengua. $5.50. I liked it.
B. got a taco platter $4. I taco he picked grilled chicken, refried beans, & Mexican rice. He liked his dish.
2 horchatas - kinda sweet, not chalky. $1.50 ea.
Total was a bit over $13. CASH ONLY. There's an ATM inside the shop.
Recommended if in the area & want cheap & good Mexican food.
