'Tis the Season! It's all about artery-clogging food this time of year. Just before Thanksgiving, Larry and I were cruising around the Del Rey, S/W Culver City area. It was lunch time. We decided to stop in at Paco's Tacos.

Paco's is old-school, Los Angeles-style Mexican food with lots of orange cheese. Yum. Before REAL Mexican food showed up in L.A., using fresh ingredients, lots of lime and not-so-much lard, this was the standard. Many of these restaurants still exist in L.A. with a few tweaks to their menus to show the public that they are "modern." Old favorites like El Coyote, El Cholo and Paco's Tacos, to name a few, have been around for decades. All of these restaurants also have a unique decor credo: More is Better. There is stuff hanging from the walls, the ceiling and any other post or beam that can possibly have decorative objects hanging from it.
Larry ordered a chicken burrito. I ordered a chile relleno with rice and beans. Notice that I did not take photos of the food. You KNOW what the food looks like here. Check Paco's website for the menu. Everything was delicious, if not exactly healthful. There is a lady near the grill at the entrance patting out fresh corn tortillas. They are sublime.

I don't care. I LOVE this place. Reserve my plot at Hillside now.
