The Friday before Thanksgiving was cold and damp for a Hawaiian Wahine. I went into this restaurant not knowing what I wanted. The owner, a delightful woman, greeted me like family and suggested I sit down and look at the menu. She then suggested her "special" coffee...hot and flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, and other delights that was so warming and delicious. I then chose their AZTECA Soup---large bowl with added chicken. My bill for both was under $10 then tax and tip. They make every bowl to order. It was THE BEST SOUPA I had ever tasted. The restaurant had tables of women and children, couples and just men taking a break from their work day. The desserts looked luschious--flan and tapioca pudding. They also have a luncheon buffet. The food looked and smelled fabulous. It was surprise finding in an area I was not familiar with but will go back on my next trip to LA. It is just off the 405--Santa Monica Boulevard exit.
