Once we decided to give up our place in Koreatown, we started regretting not having blogged the whole experience. I wrote up many of the restaurants we tried on my own blog, but we had lots of adventures that we never wrote about anywhere. With the growth of municipal blogs (like those I put in the sidebar, for a start), moving to a new town seems like a great opportunity to put our money where our Mammon is.
Most of our discoveries so far are taking within the four walls we've just purchased (hel-LO, broken oven!), but we did manage to try Alberto's the other day, a taquería recommended by a neighbor. The fish taco was about standard for around here, the chicken taco was subpar (meat way too salty and a hard taco into the bargain), but the carne adobada was really great. Another thing about Alberto's: Their tacos are twice the size of Juanita's or Taco Nazo's, so don't order three.
I passed a halal restaurant called Shalimar down on Holt the other day... Gotta check it out.
