Mercado la Paloma

Mercado la Paloma

Larry and I were dateless this past Saturday night, so we decided to cruise down to the Mercado la Paloma for dinner. We'd visited Holbox, a newish fish restaurant last May and we wanted to go back. Last time we had ceviche and the shrimp torta. This time, we tried the chiles rellenos de pescado appetizer and the pescado al carbon. Both were delicious!

I like this place. It's a fairly quick drive from our house on a Saturday night, providing nothing is going on at USC. There's a big, free parking lot and many food choices, including Thai, Ethiopian, Oaxacan, Mexican and more. There are also some cool gift shops.

All of the fish at Holbox is SO FRESH! The chef, Gilbert Cetina prepares everything on the spot. Even the corn tortillas are handmade. On Saturday Chef was offering 4 types of oysters!

On our way home we stopped by the new University Village at the northern end of USC. The Village is a MAJOR improvement over the 3-2 Market, decades ago, when I was a student at USC. Wow! I'll share pictures tomorrow.
