This is a good place if you want to try local dishes without over paying. The quality of the food here also seems better than what you get at some sodas (traditional local food joints).

The small hole in the wall places are usually the hidden gems. Great authentic home made taste. Reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed

Whomever said great things come in small packages must have eaten at Chinita Pacific. Seats about 6 inside and about 4 outside. Fifty feet off the main drag at the south end of the bridge. Erika only has two choices at lunch but I don't even pick. I just ask her to feed me. It is just a fun, small... More
