Cheap Taco Plate, Pasadena

The La Estrella on Orange Grove & Garfield - the restaurant one, the one further from the street.. ( there are 2 at same location believe it or not!) - is in my opinion the best of many items in all of pasadena: best carne asada soft taco, best tamale's, best salsa (green or red sauce), and best horchata's in all of Pasadena!

I'm open to refuters, but you better have tried these first, because I live next to 15 authentic mexican places on Orange Grove (or what I like to call 'Little Tijuana') and this place blows them all away.

Remember, NOT the la estrella closer to the street, but the one in the back of the plaza at 330 E Orange Grove.

Highly recommended!

Review + Pics: Fix Coffee in Echo Park

I really like this place, but i've heard they can be inconsistent. I just blogged about FIX here:

You guys live closer, what do you think? If it was closer, I think I'd be there all the time.

Best Coffee in LA

Totally agreed, especially 'scenester'. I just blogged about them here: Let me know what you think.

Living in Pasadena, I end up visiting places more on this side. I've gotta checkout the weho one soon though.
