Kay N Dave's--No Fat, No Flavor

michael (mea culpa) | Nov 16, 200111:42 AM    

By a strange coincidence, I ended up eating at this place in the Virgin Megaplex, Sunset & Crescent Heights, twice in a month. It's part of a mini chain of "healthy" Mexican places started by some burnt out lawyers (there must be a rule of thumb to avoid restaurants run by lawyers, ex-lawyers, their wives and exes). Much is made of the fact that the food is lardless. So? That means the chips taste lousy and they try to compensate for this by having the saltiest salsa. How healthy is that? Also, if you like black beans, this is your spot. They're everywhere, particularly as filler to avoid using too much of costlier ingredients. Do you really want black beans in your ahi tacos? Much better and probably just as healthy at Poquito Mas. So much for faux healthy.
