a new lunch spot in laguna

a new lunch spot in laguna

laguna beach is town that i love to stroll. most of the art galleries and boutiques
have stayed the same over our visits across the years, and there’s nothing like going
back to the familiar. although we love coming back for an orange inn smoothie or a
pizookie at bj’s pizza every year, it’s also fun to try some new spots each time we visit.
how great is it when a new restaurant comes onto the scene and exceeds expectations?
IMG_5022the real estate along laguna’s coast highway is really ideal in location, so after
our usual wandering around town and into old favorite shops i was excited to stop
into the new tortilla republic right in town. i had high hopes for this place, and our
hopes were blown out of the water. i think it was our favorite meal of the weekend!
i’m so excited to have a new favorite place to return to on our annual laguna trip.

IMG_5029you need to visit tortilla republic asap… (found in laguna beach, west hollywood, and kauai)
you’ll discover one of the best takes on mexican food ever. these dishes are
bursting with flavor and sauces so homemade and delicious it’s unbelievable. 

IMG_5027we are big on mexican food (who isn’t?) but this place was another level.
be sure to try this beautiful machaca burrito if you go for brunch! ^^

IMG_5028each dish we ordered was so enjoyable, like my shrimp zarandeado
salad packed with fresh healthy favors and that kiwi vinaigrette… mmm!

was our very favorite dish. i could drink the sauce. ORDER IT!
