Way, way before there was “California cuisine,” there was the original California cuisine—a fusion of Spanish, Mexican, and native foods.

As they say ......................


The thing about many (most ?) Mexican dishes is that they appear to have already been eaten once.

It's hard to get past the appearance to the taste.

But, then, that's true of many other ethnic cuisines.

Yep !


THAT is what I mean.

While some of the dishes appear OK, many others look regurgitated.

But, to each his own.

Starting back in '66 when I first visited San Felipe, I found that Bacon, Eggs and Toast was one thing that they didn't try to mess with and that's what I'd eat for the days there. Once, in the evening at Arnold's, I ventured beyond that and ordered White Sea Bass. Which came covered with so much strange crap that the fish was hidden. Lesson learned.

I express variations on the (upchucked) theme most times that my wife orders one of those Mex Mishmashes at the local diner.

She, in response, chides me for my (most) often simple (boring) fare.

Bon Appetit.
