We are foodies. We LOVE to go out and explore restaurants. Thanks to my sister, we have a Zagat membership and we are religious readers of the travel bible... Frommer's. I thought on ocassion I would throw in a restaurant review here and there to let you know about some of our favorite places in the OC and new places that we find. SO, here's an oldie but goodie! :)
A few years ago we were introduced to this family favorite by some good friends. It's a little tucked away in an old house in downtown Laguna, just a little south of the intersection of Mermaid and Second, but it is worth hunting it down! If you love Mexican food, than this is a MUST try. Be sure to bring a few quarters to feed the meters.
Be prepared to mingle with the locals and make some new friends. Seating is TIGHT. Just four small tables outside and indoor seating that totals all of three barstools...but again, it's worth the standing room only!
They are known for their fish tacos, especially Salmon, but I'm not a Salmon lover so I LOVE the Halibut tacos...
The chicken tacos are YUMMY too...
Everyone I talked to, locals, visitors from Georgia, and a surfer from Costa Rica all raved about their food too. I think I'm going to have to try their avocado lime salad next time...that seemed to be a popular choice. Order yourself a lemonade to wash it all down...it is the best fresh sqeezed lemonade I've had in quite a while...no minute maid here!
With reasonable prices, a friendly casual atmosphere, and amazing food you should definitely give La Sirena Grill a try next time you're in the mood for Mexican. :) Maybe I'll see you there! :)
