After walking out of Manhattan Inn, I was like whoa, Calexico is packed. Ben says it’s like that all the time. So he took me down the block to La Norteña. No one in there. We got carnitas pork, steak and spicy beef tacos. Complimentary chips and salsa in a little piggy bowl. The tacos were good and cheap. Why no one in there? Gringos scared to be gringos? You would think the takeout menu with the picture of the cowgirl & horse would be enough bring in the hipsters. They had me at the horse.
