Zabumba/nutmeg

I just had a meal here with two other girls and the food was not all that. I had the Chicken Zabumba, (which is all they offered for a Thursday night under their "entrees") and it sucked. The rice was dry, the beans were tough, and I've cooked better chicken on my worst days at home. One of my friends ordered some steak special and the meat was super tough. My other friend ordered some kind of chicken special and she said it sucked too. If you're looking for some good Cuban food in the West LA area, don't bother with this restaurant. The reason I came here was because a co-worker had recommended it for the Salsa music. They do play Salsa music, but I guess that's about all they had going on. I should have gone with Versailles down the road from there on Venice Blvd. I will definetely go to Versailles anytime now after having Zabumba's nasty food anytime. I can't wait for that garlic chicken at Versailees. Mmmmm!

Taco madness, Part One: El Taurino, King Taco, Tacos Por Favor

You are absolutely right about El Taurino & King Taco's tacos raising the bar. Nothing in the westside compares to those two. Tacos PorFavor? Oh Please!! Food is very average there as many other places in the westside.

Hawaiian Horizons in Santa Monica

I agree that their chicken isn't their main thing. As a matter of fact, it itsn't great at all. I had the BBQ chicken and it had loads of that nasty chicken fat. I tried their BBQ beef and it felt like I was chewing through some jerky! Their pork isnt' too bad, but overall this place isn't great. If you must have Hawaiian BBQ in the westside are, stick to Ono at the plaza on the corner of Bundy and Santa Monica. They charge about the same and the quality of the chicken and beef are way better.
