If you’ve ever been to Seattle, you know that you can’t walk two blocks without encountering a coffee shop. They’re on every. Single. Corner. The Los Angeles equivalent to Seattle’s omnipresent coffee shop is Mexican food. There is an overabundance of Mexican restaurants in this city and many don’t hold a candle to the delicious, minxy dining experience Casa Vega has to offer.
Located along a busy stretch of Ventura Boulevard (don’t let it’s valley locale hinder you!), family-owned Casa Vega at first glance seems like one of those 70’s era restaurants with stucco, lots of kitch, and not much else. However, once you’re inside (and once your eyes have adjusted to the dark interior) you begin to realize this is a effortlessly cool true sit-down Mexican place with comfy booths, gregarious staff, and ladies wearing vibrant, traditional Mexican attire. On a typical Saturday evening, this place is filled to the brim with patrons sipping on strong margaritas, downing baskets of house-made chips and salsa, and getting serenaded by a mariachi band. And, don’t be surprised if you spot one of Casa Vega’s regulars, such as Nicole Richie, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian, or Gisele Bundchen! The food and ambiance at Casa Vega is so perfectly Cali-Mexican, this restaurant gets the Minx Society approval for cozy date night.
We recommend ordering Casa Vega’s House Combination, where you’re given a choice of two items from a list of traditional Mexican dishes that includes Chile Relleno, Chicken Taco, Beef Enchilada, Vegetable Tamale, etc., which is paired with either soup or Tostada Chiquita, Spanish Rice, and Refried Beans. And, on June 28th from 11 AM to 2 AM, Casa Vega is offering their house combo for a whopping $2.15 total. That’s right, $2.15. Don’t miss this amazing deal and bring your girl or guy along for the ride.
Check out Casa Vega’s website to get a look at their full menu if the above deal doesn’t whet your palette. The menu boasts a ton of Mexican specialties we’re sure you’ll want to get your hands on.
