This place was walking distance from our hotel and seemed to be a lunch hot spot. You can spend a while just looking at all the art work and paraphanalia hanging everywhere.

We opted for vegan tacos, beans, guacamole and the vegan burrito. Ample portions and a good variety of veggies. Tacos had potato, squash carrot, corn cabbage etc and the burrito was stuffed with quinoa and veggies. Tacos could have been seasoned much more but you get salsa and good to go.

Need the best Mexican restaurant... Check out Olamendi's Mexican Restaurant. Located on Pacific Coast Highway in Dana Point California, just north of San Clemente. From the outside you might be a little concerned to walk in, but it is Excellent. This is the Restaurant that Richard Nixon, Former US President loved to frequent. We discovered it years ago and go there every time we are in the area. We live 1.5 hours north. Inside is as tacky as it comes with all kinds of pictures and Mexican paraphernalia covering every square inch of the walls. LOL but the service and the food is Magnificent. We love the chips and salsa as well. You will be happy you went there..
