Real World Eating

Wonderful lunch yesterday out in East Los at El 7 Mares (yeh I know its a chain) - clean as a pin, smiley efficient service, to die for salsa (red and green comes with the chips, I was scooping up the green) - I just love there two for one jumbo shrimp cocktail so for $9 two people are happily feeding on a large number of large shrimp in a crackling fresh broth with onions, celery and avacado, chopped cilantro. My partner also ordered the $4.95 lunch special of fish tacos - two soft tacos with a heap of freshly battered and fried fish pieces, salad, sour cream, beans, thousand island for the salad. It was enough for two - all very fresh. A bunch of lunch specials and they advertise a dozen oysters for $7.95.
