Best Mexican Discovery

You would think a city whose name has Spanish roots would be teeming with top-notch authentic restaurants. Not so. Thankfully, we can now add Phat Phrank’s to the short list. This family-owned business, led by Frank Miranda, in a quiet little strip mall offers killer Mexican fare that’s matched only by its service and hospitality. We recommend the Catota ($6.50), a freshly baked roll stuffed with barbacoa meat, cheese and salsa (topped with onions and cilantro on request). The recipe was handed down to the owner by his grandfather. If you have room for dessert, Phrank’s has the best churro this side of Ensenada.
