Campos Tacos (Los Angeles, CA)

Reviewed by BrianAlbers
Not the best neighborhood, at least at night. Daytime I'm sure is just fine, because this place is just a block from the beach right smack in the middle of the busiest part of the boardwalk in Venice Beach. But once the sun sets you'd be smart not to wander around alone. Probably less weaponry around than Escape from New York or The Warriors, but just as scary.  full review...

It's 8:41 on a Tuesday morning. I'm cooking three pounds of al pastor from Mercado Loco. Could the day begin any better?

Instead of a breakfast shindig for my coworker's 40th, we're having a burrito bar. This combines two of my favorite things: "Burrito" and "Bar." Assuming I don't get screwed on Tuesday by my civic duty a.k.a. jury duty, I'll be bringing a large quantity of al pastor from Mercado Loco as my contribution to the festivities.

This is the kinda shizzle that almost makes Furlough Fridays worthwhile.

Went over to the Little Chihuahua today, and was pleased to note that

1) The place was packed on a Monday night
2) There were little notices on the walls that asked for our patience while they remodeled - they're putting in more seats.

It's nice to see a place with good food keep it going. Super carne asada tonight; a wonderful meal.

El Castillito is about a seven-minute walk from my house. Not that far, but just far enough to occasionally result in temperature problems when getting a slab to-go. No longer:

75 hours... 7 burritos...

OK, that pace is really high, more than even i should really be trying. But my new home exists in a burrito desert, and i was on a business trip to the Bay Area, so i had to load up as best i could.

Shortly after arriving on monday, i tried a new place, Ceviche. Over the next couple days, i hit some of my faves, Los Pericos, Charlie's, Pancho Villa and De Amigos.

Wednesday eve i met up with Dan and Aaron at El Faro, a new experience for all of us. Finally, while on the way to a company event in Half Moon Bay, i had to stop by Tres Amigos.

Overall, a good trip and some darn fine slabs. But it's a lot to scarf down in a short period of time. I may need to come out more often than every 6 months to pace myself better.
