For food just like abuela's (but somehow even better), make a beeline to this soul-warming cantina, which makes its salsas, blue and white corn tortillas, and other timeless dishes by hand. Start with an antojito like albondigas fundido, then proceed to tacos filled with guajillo-braised pork ribs and tomatillo-avocado salsa or pan-seared skirt steak with vibrant and garlicky chimichurri. Another star: a roasted chile relleno, which is smoky, spicy, sweet, and earthy in equal measure. What the space lacks in square footage, it more than makes up for in down-home appeal. But this isn't a great choice for those in a rush, as the homespun service can get easily overwhelmed. Check out the second location on Main Street in Los Gatos as well.
