Taco + SALVADOREAN Update 2.25

COMPLETE TAQUERIA LIST HERE LOS TAMALES POBLANOS in Oceano added at ♦  Quite good tacos, very authentic with their own touch.  No credit cards, simple menu, very low-key operation.  Nothing overwhelmingly impressive.  Might return merely for support, as there are far better tacos nearby. LOS COMADRES SALVADOREAN in Santa Maria added at  ♦♦  Now here…

Edit to List

THE CENTRAL COAST RESTAURANTS LIST EMBER in Arroyo Grande raised to ♦♦♦  Everything is firing on all cylinders here.  Food ranges from interesting to stunning each month as the menu changes.  Occasionally something shows up which doesn’t translate well, but it typically goes away quickly.  Great wine list and service.  This restaurant will never get…

Taco additions 1.28

COMPLETE TAQUERIA LIST HERE CHRONIC TACOS  San Luis Obispo added at  ◊  Yes, a chain but hey, I have to try!  Honestly not that bad.  Everything was horrible, don’t get me wrong, but totally do in a pinch. TACO KING  San Luis Obispo added at  ◊◊  Horrible dyed-red shiny meat; Salsa game exceedingly weak.  Asked…

KunFusion

Finally got around to KUNFUSION at the new (to me) brick & mortar in Pismo Beach.  Nice corner of Pismo Coast Shopping Center next door to California Fresh Market.  Great ‘feel’ inside–the bustle of the kitchen is *just close enough* to give reminders to the taco-truck roots of this restaurant.  The menu has a lot…

Foremost Wine Company

It’s a RESTAURANT!  It’s A WINE-SHOP!  It’s a LOUNGE!  Wait.  What is it?!  It is only San Luis Obispo’s newest dining concept and I say concept only because ‘experience’ was taken–several times–and just really doesn’t do the whole package justice.  Now that Foremost Wine Company is fully open, it is prime time to get yourself…

Market SM

You all remember Central Market, right? The only–and I mean THE ONLY–place worth eating at in Santa Maria after Chef Rick’s closed. It was OK… in a ‘ladies-who-lunch’ sorta way, the deli/store out front and the counter ordering somewhat turned me off from considering it a serious dining establishment, but it was decent food. Have…

Steamers Pismo

About once every 5 years I am required to eat at Steamers for some reason or another… Ya know, it’s honestly not *that bad* of a restaurant, all things considered. Ambience is great; Tablecloths; Quite professional service (observing both my table and several around me with other waiters); Everyone over 50 is dressed for dinner–and…

Resty edits

Comfort Market Arroyo Grande upgraded to ♦♦♦.  Deserved it all along–just an amazing restaurant–and a permanent change to full hostess/waiter seating/ordering procedure have streamlined previous counter-ordering service issues. Ciopinot San Luis Obispo  to ♦♦.  Recent visit proves it is still a REALLY NICE PLACE, but food-quality and atmosphere just doesn’t merit ♦♦♦.
