la cantarito – placentia
yum. this old-town placentia restaurant is a family favorite now. we come here at least once a month if we aren’t scared away by the wait (yes, there is a long wait on weekends. beware). their chile verde (burrito called “burrito especial” or just chile verde) is amazing. la bistec ranchero/mexicana are both great too. there are plenty of hole-in-the-wall mexican places in socal. this one is clean enough to bring your caucasian in-laws that are a bit squirmish in dirty places because it’s clean and the food is still wonderful.
we have also ordered their fish tacos on wednesdays a few times, to go. delish. they are .99c each and we probably order a tray of ten.
