This week we’re out in California for a few meetings and to do some Outpost Vintage buying for the store.
First stop is San Diego.
It literally rained every day. Still a nice escape from the sub zero temperature in NY.
We dropped by Cuatro Milpas. Known as the most authentic Mexican food in SD.
As a proud Mexican food connoisseur I can tell you without any doubt that this is the best taco I’ve ever tasted.
Everything is perfect. The meat, the rice, beans, even the no-frills atmosphere is part of the appeal in this place.
Everything is made right before your eyes. You can sit and watch your tortillas be made right before your eyes as you eat.
Next stop, Los Angeles. Don’t let this shot fool you. It still rained every day.
We toured the various flea markets and antique stores shopping for props and display items for the new season at the Outpost.
The Ventura Flea Market was great.
But not nearly as great as Pete’s Breakfast House in Ventura.
People line up for hours to eat at this place. Everyone on the line was talking about how Pete’s had just been featured on Food Network’s Diners Drive In’s and Drives show the week prior.
Clockwise from the middle; fresh tortillas, breakfast wrap with eggs, avocado, sprouts, beans and potatoes, corn beef hash with potatoes, and two pancakes stuffed with cottage cheese and home made jam. Unreal.
Got to stop by all the stores on Robertson. Loved how the Chanel store was open to the street like this.
Kitson is promoting a brand that did a great job producing some completely unique graphic sweatshirts and tees. Such a great idea. Wish we had thought of that first??
I had never been to Santa Monica Before so we took a trip up to check out the Pier.
Highlight of the LA flea market scene is the Fairfax flea. Every sunday. Great pickups here.
Took a trip around the corner and chopped it up with our buddies at Hall Of Fame on Fairfax.
And of course Nick and the guys at Diamond right next door. Got some exciting things in the works with these guys.
