Editorial Review of
El Fandango Restaurant
"Fandangos" were traditional parties thrown by California’s Mexican inhabitants, Old Town’s original residents. While fandangos often lasted as long as a month, El Fandango Restaurant is a wonderful place to experience similar time-honored festivities for an evening. The adobe interior is a lovely setting for pleasant dining on dishes like red snapper in Veracruz sauce, carne asada with shrimp and mushrooms, and chimichangas, which are deep-fried burritos in sauce. The more courageous may partake in some menudo, a breakfast soup with tripe and hominy. When the weather permits, dining in the heated patio is a pleasurable experience. For a festival and traditional Mexican dining experience in Old Town San Diego, visit El Fandango Restaurant.
