Los Agaves, Thousand Oaks

Mr. Snackish and I had lunch at Los Agaves, in the little strip mall on TO Blvd and Conejo School Rd., next to the Civic Arts Plaza.

It is simple yet comfy, with about a dozen tables and a bar. They are open for breakfast on weekends and apparently have mariachis sometimes.

Chips and salsa were fresh and tasty. Salsa just a little spicy, more molcajete style than pico de gallo style.

We had a big plate of guacamole. Fresh, good consistency, not lumpy and not pureed to death, but a little salty for me.

I just had an appetizer of corn tamales, which were fat and lovely, a little sweet, flavored with cinnamon, in a big pool of fresh salsa verde with two little dabs of sour cream. The salsa verde was very good.

Mr. Snackish had the chicken chilaquiles, which I loved. The chips were just a little soft but still crunchy, a nice red sauce, a bit of shredded cheese, and chunks of white meat chicken.

Service was very good, friendly. The meal was about $22.
