La Superica - Santa Barbara

Had my favorite at "famous" (Julia Child's favorite) La Superica Mexican food restaurant (Milpas Street, Santa Barbara) in Santa Barbara yesterday, just like for the past almost 25 years since it opened and it remains my steadfast favorite: Number 15 - the Tocino Special

This is melted cheese with bacon that gets poured into fresh tortillas with a generous dollop of fresh pico de gallo salsa - asolute heaven.

But I don't see many other people ordering this so I thought I'd pass along my experience with it in case others were looking for more to explore on this menu.

Plus if other's have their own favorites at La Superica, I'd love to hear about them too.

The owner was modestly pleased to read in the book - 1000 Things To See Before You Die -- when Santa Barbara was listed it included the suggestion to visit his little restaurant - he exclaimed in his always charming manner - My goodness, I am in there along with the Mona Lisa!
