When I was talking to Mama Monkey on the phone yesterday, she said she hoped that I didn't "have any activities" today. She reads my blog and thinks that I "do too much."
We don't have any plans today, except to have our weekly meal with Little Monkey Niece tonight. But we did make a short neighborhood jaunt to pick up our Dodger playoff tickets from the closest Ticketmaster outlet, Ritmo Latino.
Ritmo Latino is close to the old beautiful Bradbury Building.
Grand Central Market, where we grabbed a quick lunch to go.
These are times when I'm glad I always have a little point-and-shoot with me. I don't really "do too much," as Mama Monkey puts it. I just happen to document even my most mundane errands.
After surveying the premises, we decided on Sarita's Pupuseria today over my usual haunt, Tacos Tumbras a Tomas (which I highly recommend -- the gorditas are incredible).
pupusa now costs a whopping $2.40.
pupusas are made fresh to order. This pic is way blurry because the owner of the little stand was giving me the stink eye, and I rushed to snap.
What can I say? I prefer asking for forgiveness instead of asking for permission.
We took our food to go and had a feast at home. Mr. Monkey, who is enamored with corned beef hash, was intrigued by the comparatively expensive salpicon ($7.25). It was ok, but I advise sticking with pupusas.
Here's our stack of pupusas ($2.40 each) and accompanying curtido and hot sauce. We sampled four different kinds: shrimp and cheese, carne asada and cheese, chicken and cheese, and a revuelta (pork, cheese, and beans).
One pupusa is enough of a meal for me, but I nibbled on a little of each for comparison's sake. Needless to say, we have lots of leftovers. I liked the shrimp and cheese the most today.
