Fresca Fruit (South Gate)


It had been awhile since I had stopped by this location for some bionicos fare and considering I was within walking distance, I felt it was time to get my fix.

Tacos de carne asada.

Some of the specials they were featuring during lent.

I don't know about you, but I love atole.  I know, it's textural thing for most people, but I don't mind it at all. 

The hot walnut atole caught my eye but the weather was warm so I bought a refreshing horchata instead.  I'd pass on the rice drink next time.  It didn't taste homemade, so I kinda question the atole now. 

Taco trio.

The tacos we ordered were decent but definitely not a highlight at this bionicos place.  The meat was good but they came dressed with way too much cilantro.  Also, they were sent out with lemon.  I don't mind lemon, but most people would prefer softer, gentler acidity in the form of lime.  The salsas they offer are pretty good though.  One is a chile de arbol salsa, the other is a tomatillo one and the last is a creamy avocado sauce similar to what they offer at Pollo Loco. 

Costa Brava with Aguachila - Doritos, jaiva, shrimp, avocado, pickled red onion, tomato and citrus.

 I wasn't sure what I wanted to eat, so I went with something familiar.  It was par for the course, but nothing else - just a large snack to hold you over for a few more hours before you have a meal.       

Don't know what to order, just look all around you.  

Most menu items have accompanying pictures.  For me, the whole thing is overwhelming.  I hate large menus - probably why I stay away from Cheesecake Factory.
