Dinner at Chronic Tacos

Dinner at the new Chronic Tacos, on the west side of Myrtle at the east end of the Vons shopping area. It is organized very much like Chipotle - build your own tacos. I got the 2 Taco Plate for $8.95. It was very good!

I also got a beer (it’s “selfTAP,” aka self serve). To get the beer you have to get a “beer card,” which has a $2 activation fee, then you put money on the card (I put $8 on it) then you tap the card at the tap and pour your beer. I took the card to the cashier and asked what was left on it. I’ve got $3.11 left, and can reload the card if I want, so it either cost $4.89, or $6.89 if you count the activation fee. Okay, that’s different.

Dinner at Max’s

Dinner at Max’s, on the north side of Huntington kinda across the street from Target. Got the One Soft Taco plate with carnitas for $11.50 and a beer for $7. There was enough filling - and two tortillas - so I made two tacos. Very good!

Dinner at The Diplomat

Dinner at The Diplomat, on the north side of Lemon a few feet east of Myrtle. I’m usually a carnivore but decided to give the falafel ($12) a try along with a German beer ($8). The falafel - patties of bean paste deep fried - was tasty and filling. The humus and garlic paste gave it a nice tang.

Dinner at Lord Empanada

Dinner at Lord Empanada, on the east side of Myrtle just south of the freeway. Got three empanadas, beef, chicken, and spinach-cheese, for $3.50 each (they also have sandwiches) and blindly grabbed a canned drink I later figured out was a mimosa, for $10. All three empanadas were very good but my favorite was the spinach-cheese.

Dinner at Mikomi Sushi

Dinner from Church’s Chicken

Dinner from Church’s Chicken, at the corner of Huntington and Shamrock. I got the three-piece Texas Tenders with creamy jalapeño dipping sauce. There’s no dining at the restaurant so we ate at home. I got four pieces of chicken (by accident?) and it came with a side (I picked coleslaw) and a drink, all for $7.99. Nothing fancy but tasty chicken at a good price.
