El Tarasco in Hanford CA

On my road trip to get away for a bit a couple of months ago I stayed one night in Hanford CA. I'd never been there but i picked it because it was sort of half way back to LA from the Bay Area kind of sort of. Dinner was picking one of several restaurants in Downtown Hanford which is basically one street. I picked this place because i liked their neon sign; El Tarasco at 114 W 7th St, Hanford, CA 93230. The fish tacos were delicious. i wasn't feeling 100% so I did not drink a beer. The tacos were screeaming for a beer but I stayed the course. What I really appreciated was the large screens showing the nights NCAA Men's Basketball games. That made me feel better.

Shreebs in Echo Park

O M G!!!! After a year since they closed their spot in DTLA's Arts District, SHREEBS is back in a brick in mortar next to a yoga place on a side street off Glendale Blvd, through this side driveway area. There's signs. You'll find it; 1755 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026. WELCOME BACK!!!!!

Prado at Balboa Park in San Diego

Yeah, it's a tourist spot, Balboa Park but it's not so bad. Inside one of the old buildings is this place called Prado, 1549 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101. For a tourist spot this place has really good food, said my friend Alessandra. And it did. We had sides and some beer. I think that's the main thing, they have a pretty good beer and wine selection. It's also a nice spot to munch on good sides and people watch. in our case we got to catch up. Sometimes these tourist spots can surprise you a bit.

Dark Horse Roasters in San Diego

It looks like there are several of these in San Diego but this was was located at 3260 Adams Ave, San Diego, CA 92116. The coffee was great but i especially appreciated the welcome and friendly convo at the register. it was a really windy day in San Diego and it was just nice to walk into an interior, be welcomed, sit down for a while and drink a hot cup of coffee. Thanks guys!
