Old Town Mexican Cafe and Cantina, San Diego
I started off with the obligatory margarita (chips and salsa complimentary), followed by a ceviche starter, which wasn't bad, if a bit sour. The carnitas (the house special, BTW) were not as crispy or greasy as I remember them (crap - I just realized that I didn't order the crispy option - argh!!!), but oh do I still miss that taste (hey fresh salsa, tortillas, and avocado!). The chile relleno was par for the course, while the key lime pie was surprisingly tight and tarty.
Bottom line: even if this isn't completely out of this world, it's still worth going to for the freshness alone. Next stop: south of the border to Tijuana, Mexico!
