Judged simply on salsa, Traspasada on California, Elston & Belmont stands alone in this Mexican cuisine-wealthy city. Wiz lives nearby and we’ll go there from time to time. Couple weekends ago we went both Friday & Saturday. The Home of the Black Salsa beckons those with functioning taste buds.
Let’s not forget the burritos. Steak burrito, everything:
Can’t recall if it was Friday or Saturday, but one of the nights before or after a burrito Wiz threw on the Eddie Vedder/Cubs Netflix show. It intersperses footage from the 2016 World Series run with Pearl Jam’s Wrigley Field concerts.
A mesmerizing time capsule for any Cubs fan. Of what was everything.
All the salsa had been washed in black. Salsa-ed everything.
