Owner Samalita has fashioned this homey, happy-go-lucky Mexican restaurant with recipes and remnants drawn from her California childhood. Offerings exhibit a typical West Coast taste for fresh, health-conscious ingredients, and an unusually large number of vegetarian options coexist alongside mildly spiced, meaty mainstays like quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas.
