california craving : el toro bravo
I've got to say I really crave good Mexican food a lot here in IL. I think living in the 'burbs has a lot to do with it but in general I'd say that Mexican food is tastier at home in CA. I'm talking about the late night, hole-in-the-wall, shady looking, slightly dangerous feeling, Mexican food places that make you happy to be alive. I'm talking about places like El Toro Bravo in Costa Mesa, CA near Triangle Square. I posted this picture in 2010, here, right after Christmas....good times, good times. Augh, fresh ingredients, authentic preparation, and killer flavor...makes you want to cry.
