Need Best Of Categories

In this season of "Best Of" contests (the Register and Orange Coast recently did theirs and the OC Weekly is still accepting votes for theirs) I thought it'd be time to finally do a Best Of OC Mexican Restaurants contest on this site. What I need from the readers is suggestions as to what categories we should focus on. If you have an idea for a category, and it could be funny (i.e., "Best Cougar Bar") or serious (i.e., "Best Charity Events") but we mostly need food-related ones (i.e., "Best Tofu Tacos on PCH"), please mention it by leaving a comment on this thread. Or, if you're afraid to leave a comment, send me an e-mail at reviews@oxmexfood.com.

Remember we are only trying to nail down the categories right now, not looking for nominations. If you have a nomination to make write it down or make a mental note to yourself for when nominatin' time comes. It may even be that there will be award to go to the winners.

Best Elvis Lounge... ;)

There's going to be some stiff competition for the Best Elvis Lounge.

Best Mexican Breakfast! I'm always looking for good breakfast joints. And it doesn't have to be a Mexican restaurant...Molly's Country Kitchen case in point.

ChristianZ said...

Thanks for the category idea. That reminds me that I need to get back to Mollie's.

Hi Christian. I'm always looking for the Best Carnitas :) Good luck with all. I'll have to check out the final list.

ChristianZ said...

Oh, I think I might know who will win for best carnitas.

Best beans.

Beans, the perfect accompaniment to good Mexican food. When they're good, they're a song in my mouth.

When they're bland, they're a disappointment.

When they're canned, so is the restaurant that served them to me.

Six days into this and we're up to three categories! Thanks, Captain.

ChristianZ said...

Oh, wait, I guess we're actually up to four.

Here's another one, and I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned: Best chiles rellenos.

The tag line under my name on my Yelp account says it all:

"In search of the best chile relleno in the world...."

ChristianZ said...

That's a good one.
