We were looking for Carnitas Michocuan (sp?) on Monterey Road based on reviews here. We never found it and thought it might be closed anyway for the holidays.
Anyway, Los Pericos was a few doors away and we took a chance. Couldn't find any reviews here. We were pleasantly surprised.
It was crowded (very popular), very nice atmosphere. Seemed like everyone else was ordering the menedo.
We had the carnitas tostada (which was good) and the shrimp w/ garlic (fantastic).
