Golden Ciudad, Golden Arches ... (listening to LA Woman)

Sabes que ... I enjoy sanTana ... simon ... there's real bodies aqui ... not too many plastic creatures walking aqui porque plastic boobs aren't really a priority for barrio wages ... chale ... what you see hanging, bulging and bouncing are puro RAZA carne ... simon ... BUTT what I truly enjoy is chowing down ... I’m a big pinche fan of RAZA comida … I enjoy stopping and eating at many of the not-so-pretty holes aqui en the golden ciudad … my pansa es muy pinche macho … as a matter of fact, I’m the vato who eats at the corners in Tijuana and Seal Beach … I just really enjoy TASTE …

So, if you’re also into taste, sanTana comida is your excuse to cruise into nuestra golden city … simon … it’s routine … CERVEZA and a SHOT or DOS … chips … CERVEZA … CERVEZA … comida … move on … BUTT this ain’t your regular CERVEZA-2SHOT-CHIPS-CERVEZA-CERVEZA-COMIDA pueblo … chale … what makes the sanTana restaurant experience unique is the god damn radio on every restaurant counter blasting the pinche hell out of your fucking ears … pinche polka cochinada takes some pinche adjustment … UM-PA … UM-PA … UM-PA … BUTT the CERVEZA makes it sound better than it is ... besides, if you want firmed comida, the muscica's a fucking must …

Simon … it’s a classic initiation environment aqui in the golden city … siempre ... the above CERVEZA recipe along with the POLKA cochinada blasting from the pinche silver box on the pinche counter … AT 9AM … and if you let them know its too loud, they always say the same shit … no se como apagarlo … or, it's pinche broken … BUTT on this one pinche occasion, I stopped by CASA COLIMA … simon … alli on Main, cerca de la 700 CLUB … simon …. Not too long ago it was a Serranos … #4 or 5, don’t remember … then ownership changed … simon … the owner was some vieja who claimed to just come off the bus and then bought that restaurant before setting up a casita … then it closed for REMODELING … NOT REDEVELOPMENT … CHALE CON REDEVELOPMENT … REDEVELOPMENT PELA ... como fregan …

Anyways … this lugar was close for a few months … entonces … un dia it was open … simon … it looks like a firme patio with firme shapey arches all around … nice pavers ... simon … the vato went all out … he’s a cool vato … anyways … about a week ago I was heading to eas los when I passed Colima … fue como las 9am and shit … and the vato was serving comida … so I stopped by for a cafecito … for the road, you know … simon … he was serving burritos de jeuvo o frijoles y café … that was all … then it was my turn to order … “puedo ordenar un burrito de carnitas, con todo” … “que” the young hina asked … “un burrito de carnitas” … “que” … pinche radio was blasting so fucking loud we couldn’t hear jack … we went another two rounds when she gave this unconvincing nod and said “OK” …

Chingow … the vato had the radio blasting on the side so pinche loud you couldn’t hear nada … BUTT he called me aside and pointed to the ceramico figures he just hung up on the pation wall along the table … PINCHE DUDE … I was lost for words … then I looked up again and thought they actually looked OK even though they were hung up about 10 feet from the floor … they were bright ... MUY MEXICALLI ... all that was missing was velvet couches and the mirror mesas … the vato has firme ideas …

We talked for a few minutes then my order was ready … I grabbed my bag and nodded to the vato … jumped in the carucha and realized I forgot unas papeles … so I headed back to my pinche chante … sat the at mesa and pulled out my order … pinche vieja … she packed me some pinche sexy torta … simon … and the tortas nalgas, pues pan, were round and burned … it was damn good killer comida even though I really felt for a burrito ... full of whatever I had ordered ... pinche dude …

Pues I was there today … and there she was all fucking smiling and shit … I pointed to the radio and nodded … the volume was lowered and again I enjoyed what I was eating … pinche dude … apaga esa pinche radio … again he called me to the side … he was hanging triangle shaped glass mirrors … simon … the mirrors had holes in them so he was pounding big fucking clavos with an oversized hammer right through the mirrors … not one cracked … I was impressed … BUTT PINCHE RAZA … triangle mirrors for the pinche patio, bright pink ceramica muebles para afuera, velvet leather everywhere and the pinche radio blasting and 9AM … like I said, sanTana restaurants are a classic experience and the food is always firme …
