Super-Rica in Santa Barbara

Leslie Brenner | Dec 4, 200003:31 PM    

Finally made my first visit to Super-Rica. Of course I had to try Super-Rica Especial--grilled poblanos with grilled marinated pork, cheese, and corn tortilla. Very tasty--a great introduction. Also had a taco adobado--totally plain and correct. Love the sight of the tortillas coming right off the press and onto the grill. Gorditas were a little heavy and too charred. Excellent pinto beans with little bits of pork--nice hint of smokiness, and very good rice. Washed down with Negra Modelo (in our case) and horchata (in our kid's case), it was wonderful. However, I didn't really think it was, in and of itself, necessarily worth a pilgrimage from L.A. I've had dozens of tacos that good in little tacquerías scattered through east L.A....That said, if I lived in Santa Barbara, I'm sure I'd eat there a couple times a week!
