Chulada Grille

Chulada Grill - Mid-City
A few times a month we frequent our local Oaxacan restaurant, The Chulada Grill. It's on the corner of Hauser and San Vicente, Mid-City...conveniently located in a mini-mall across the street from the mini-mall containing a Baskin-Robbins shop.
The Chulada is small, but there are tables for indoor seating, a salsa bar and Spanish-language novelas on the overhead TVs. We usually order the burritos. The last time we were there, I, in fact, did order the carnitas burrito. It was delicious. Larry ordered the chile relleno plate, with rice and black beans. They serve beer and wine, along with many soft drinks from Mexico and the U.S.

It's always wonderful to have a place right in the neighborhood that's quick and where you can pick up food to go. Chulada will also deliver within a 3 mile radius. There's a live theater, a hairdresser and a dress shop in the same block, along with a laundromat in the mini-mall. Across the street in the same mini-mall as the Baskin-Robbins is 7/11. Kitty-Corner, you'll find Pasquale Shoe Repair and Coffee House. It's one-stop-shopping at it's finest in good ol' Wilshire Vista!

Hi Ellen,

I know exactly where that Baskin-Robbins is located! I never noticed the restaurant across the street. I must try it. Thanks!

I've ridden my bike past this place a million times and always wondered if it was any good. Sounds like it's pretty yummy! Do they have any veg food? Maybe a veggie burrito or something?

Hello Ellen,

Your blogs are so interesting!

Can you recommend any restaurants in Burbank, California? I will be visiting this area at the end of the month.

Hey Lisa! YES! Chulada Grill has many, many vegetarian choices. The mole' sauces are really good too!

Desiree...Welcome to SoCal. My fave place in Burbank is Porto's Bakery and Cafe on Hollywood Way and Magnolia. Everything there is divine and reasonable!

Thanks, Ellen! I'll give it a try. And maybe I'll see you there!

Another great place in Burbank is the Thai Room on Hollywood Way and Clark. It is tiny with delicious food and terrific lunch specials. And it's right across the street from Unwind, my favorite yarn store. Food and yarn? What could be better?
