If you've ever spent time in my lovely hometown of Manhattan Beach, you'll definitely know El Som (El Sombrero - Manhattan Ave/10th Street). It is a semi-dive (but...are there really any dives in the yuppie central Manhattan Beach anymore?), hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant just blocks from my parents house in downtown MB...the salsa is sooo YUMMMY!!!!!! I think it's my favorite ever! So, naturally, before we headed over to meet Grant, baby #1 for the raisin's (my group of high school girlfriends - long story), we picked up El Som for all! I, of course, had my usual Bean and Cheese buritto dry -- probably the most boring, ordinary thing on the menu but it always hits the spot!!!!!!!!!!!
