Each state bordering Mexico has its own version of Mexican food, and California is rich with options: Fish tacos, pork carnitas, corn tortillas, and freshly made guacamole are a few local favorites. El Tarasco Mexican Cafe has a large array of authentic specialties from Baja California at very reasonable prices and colorful hand-painted murals make for a lively atmosphere. Try an enormous burrito for under five dollars, or an enchilada plate with beans and rice for under $10. Complimentary house-made salsa and chips are delivered to every table. And, don’t forget to wash down the meal with a Mexican beer.
