Taco truck on rose

in Venice.Had the taco de carnitas.Sat in my car and said to myself "O my god" this is the best taco I've ever had.The pork was Crisp on the outside,tender with chopped onions,cilantro.Served on the side grilled onions and roasted chile's.The guy next to me was eating a cerviche tostado that looked really good.Thats what I'm getting next.

Alternatives to "LOBSTER" with a view?

There arn't any really good seafood restaurants around here with a view.You have to find the View and hope for the best.Mostly your grilled fish type nothing fancy.The Charthouse on P.C.H,The Penthouse(for a view) they probably have a good fish.
