Blue Plate Taco, Santa Monica, CA

Blue Plate Taco Restaurant Review

: Blue Plate Taco, a sister restaurant of Santa Monica's Blue Plate Oysterette, is located in the eco-friendly Shore Hotel right on Ocean Avenue with views of the Pacific. Every dish on the menu is a winner, so choose what you feel like eating that evening. But don’t keep reordering the guacamole and chips, because that might mean the rest of your meal will end up being taken home. Favor a plate of ceviche to start. Then it’s on to the tacos, served with rice and beans or slaw. They can be filled with vegetables, steak, fish, chicken, lobster and very tasty pork belly. Leave on a sweet note with cheesecake or gelato. The full bar offers margaritas and sangría (both come by the glass or in pitchers), specialty cocktails, tequilas and mezcal.
