Food for Friday: El Paseo Inn at Olvera Street
Oh Halloween and Dia de los Muertos! Last year I finally did something I've wanted to do for a long time.
Head over to Olvera Street and experience a real Dia de los Muertos festival. Of course that means eating Mexican food!
Our choice in the very crowded Olvera Street? El Paseo Inn! Come join us.
Inside was darkly appointed with artwork that fit the restaurant.
And for the season, a colorful altar. Hard to photograph but I had to try.
We sat on the busy patio but it was kind of fun watching costumed people go by. The wait staff was also in costume. Of course it also helps to have a margarita on the rocks.
For me a veggie burrito. I did see they have fish tacos on Wednesday. But this was a really good burrito that was just the right size.
And for the guy his usual order of a chicken burrito. He did enjoy this one.
There are a number of places to eat on Olvera Street. So I'm not going to say El Paseo Inn is the best there because I haven't tried the other places. But I will say it was very good and the staff was great considering how busy it was. El Paseo Inn's website is right here.
