Every so often it seems like someone is looking for California-style Mexican food.
Well, Saturday night, I found a great place. It's called Lupe's East L.A. Kitchen and it's at 110 6th Ave at Watts St.
It's a small restaurant, with a really nice atmosphere-- low lighting, unobtrusive music, sexy neon glow coming in from the sign outside...
We had some really tasty (albeit a little weak) Margaritas, and I had enchiladas suizas, which were flavorful and not too greasy. Also split a coconut flan for dessert, which was heavenly and dense.
Entrees are around $8-- a great deal!
It's going to be my new favorite place for dinner before or after Film Forum.
