It is a sad reflection on the up-market restaurants of LA that I enjoyed this meal as much as any, expect perhaps that at Linq. This offered some genuine Mexican dishes as well as the more familiar burritos etc, and it did that very well. A seafood cocktail came as a sort of cold soup, with nicely cooked shrimp in a spicy salsa- like consommé, laced with coriander and full of tomato flavour with a tang of lime (14/20).

I had an excellent chicken quesadilla, served as a single large sphere, packed with tasty chicken. A fillet of beef with rancheros sauce was correctly cooked, while a fish enchilada was also excellent. Try Bohemia beer. The whole thing, with free chips and excellent quesadilla nibbles, came to USD 60 with service, and the Zagat snipe about portion size is absurd. The original location is in Boyle Heights, and is still open. Highly recommended.
