If you’re anything like me and you use wherethefuckshouldigoeat.com on the reg because you never know what you’re in the mood for, then listen up because I found the perfect spot. If you’re in the Santa Barbara / Goleta / Isla Vista / California / America area you need to try Vicenta’s Mexican Restaurant.
I had the chance to go and try out different dishes from the menu they are serving and holy GUAC it’s delicious. I’m the weird type of person who needs to be “in the mood” for Mexican food and doesn’t freak out about Taco Tuesday… yeah I know I’m not normal (same goes for peanut butter but that’s for another time) but you best believe that I am ALWAYS going to be in the mood for Vicenta’s and their churros. See churro porn below:
Served with raspberry, chocolate, and vanilla dipping sauce
So as a PSA I’m gonna show you some of my favorite dishes and drinks that you
should NEED to try out when you go Vicenta’s!
French fries, parmesan cheese, parsley, black truffle oil, grilled onion tartar, and spicy chipotle ketchup
CASCARAS DE PAPA CANTINERAS
Potato skin sautéed with tomato sauce, onion, Chile Serrano, and cilantro
