REVIEW: BENNY’S TACOS AND ROTISSERIE

The Monster has a soft spot in his heart for Benny’s Tacos and Rotisserie.  And now, with a slight remodel, the addition of beer and for no apparent reason whatsoever a full Mediterranean menu at a Mexican restaurant, Benny’s is even more confused and delightful than before.

Maybe The Monster likes Benny’s because the people are friendly, the food pretty tasty, the prices decent enough.  Maybe it’s the large front patio. Maybe it’s the VIP card entitling you to 5% off your meal (that’s like an entire quarter on most orders, The Monster is a whiz at maths).  What else does The Monster dig?

REVIEW: THE SERVING SPOON

The greatest place in LA?  The Monster is going to get his fried chicken on.  And some drummettes.  Mac n cheese!  Collard greens!  French fries!  Candied yams!  Chicken noodle soup!  This is about to get religious.  Thank you Serving Spoon.

In Inglewood, this homey joint is lined with pictures of famous African-Americans and be it at a booth or the counter you’re sure to get friendly service and gut busting classics as soul singers croon.

REVIEW: TAQUERIA LOS ANAYA

On West Adams sits this unassuming Mexican sporting a few tables inside and out in a bright and festive room adorned with pinatas hanging from the ceiling and Mexican crooners serenading you as you wait for your food.  On this day the joint is packed and Los Anaya does a brisk take-out business as well.

The menu is a greatest hits of Mexican cuisine and The Monster can’t wait to dig in.  You might try some sopes, flautas, tortas or enchiladas.  Perhaps a burrito or quesadilla is more to your liking.  And of course there are soups and salads as well.
