La Perla is my favorite restaurant in Watsonville! Somewhat hidden behind smoky windows in a small site right on Main Street it is easy to overlook, but once you know it's there you'll never forget the place. Totally authentico, this is an unglamorous but warm and very friendly place to eat. The owner's daughter is usually our waitress and she is incredibly helpful and friendly. Ron and I each had an order of camarones en ranchero sauce last time we were there and it was so delicious; and so much food! Ron and I had enough for lunch the next day, as well. Ron drank a Negro Modelo and I had a chelado (although they call it by a slightly different name) made of Corona beer and clamato juice - yummy! Other goodies to try: pulpo (octopus) and oysters. They also make a fabulous camarones in garlic sauce. In fact, everything is wonderful.
