Our Tour of Mexican Restaurants PART 2!

This project has taught me a lot of things...including the names of every taco stand east of Vermont.  You may recall we decided early on to have each production meeting in a different Mexican restaurant in Silverlake - a task that turned out to be relatively easy.

Sadly, last night was our last stop...but what a treat it's been.  We could certainly keep going as we barely scratched the surface of what Silverlake has to offer...but we'll leave that for our next production!

Week #6:  MALO
This place was fan-CY!  Perhaps a little too fancy for me.  I had a delicious quesadilla though.  And about 20 pounds of chips.

Week #7: Barragan's
I never understood why this Mexican place has the name of an Irish place.  Regardless, we had a great time at Barragan's.  The waitress was so friendly to us, even though we can be sort of a demanding group.  And if I remember correctly, the burritos came with eggs on top!  Crazy! 

Week #8: El Chavo
I think this ranks as one of my favorites - though Joseph had to go to bat with the manager to get them to split our check for us!  Again, we're a demanding group.

Week #9: The Best Fish Taco in Ensenada
I eat here all the time, so this was like coming home for me.  I can't say enough good things about TBFTiE.  It was the perfect place for our last meeting...quiet, informal, it was more like tacos with friends than a production meeting.  

And that's it!  Our tour of Silverlake Mexican restaurants has come to a close...Unless we decide to order in during tech they have Mexican places in Koreatown???  Anyway: we hope you've enjoyed following along as much as we've enjoyed actually doing it!

  1. Barragans may still be my fave. Especially on Wednesday nights with the hip $3 martini crowd.
