I'm a New Yorker visiting California next week. I'll be staying at the Standard on Sunset, and I'll also be driving down to San Diego and back part of the time. I'm interested in finding some good Mexican or Cal-mex food.
Chowhounders, impress a jaded new yorker and show off how good the Mexican food really is out there, whether it's upscale or a total hole-in-the-wall dive (although I'd prefer a dive).
