Don Antonio’s
Posted by:  adam c. marshall

I love Mexican food. I’m not talking tacos, combination plates, and chips & salsa–no disrespect, chips & salsa et al are all gravy to me. I’m talking queso blanco, mole sauce, and chilaquiles. It’s kind of like when I learned that most Chinese restaurants have two menus. Those they give to egg-roll-honkies, and those they give to the Chinese customers. I want the real Mexican food. Not Baja Fresh. No Tex Mex. And someplace that’s either A) Authentic or B) Regional. I’m flabbergasted at how a town like LA can have so much Mexican food of such little quality. I’m determined to find the good stuff. So I polled my Angeleno Mexican-American friends and I’ve started my Quixotic journey at Don Antonio’s. It’s been around for forty-five years, and I was assured it was great. And it wasn’t regional, but it was authentic. Great salsa. Fun atmosphere. And the cheese and onion enchiladas were sabrosos! My search for green chili a la Sourthern Colorado goes on, but not a bad start. Via con verdes.
