Taqueria La Bamba (yes, I think it's named after the song) is a humble little place hiding away on a small corner in Fullerton and was recommended to me by Gustavo Arellano (I think - actually, now that I think about it more it was recommended to me by somebody that Gustavo had introduced me to). It's a pretty good representation of a mom-and-pop hole-in-the-wall joint and anyone looking for an authentic Mexican food experience in Orange County could find one here. Chips and salsa here aren't just chips and salsa but chips strewn with beans and cheese and served with robustly flavored red and green hot sauces:


The crispy cubed carnitas that had been recommended to me lived up to their recommendation and make a great example of Mexican food. And they get bonus points for the yummy avocado salsa (it was too chunky and unblended to be called guacamole). And more points for serving freshly made fruit and vegetable juices.
