Two new Mexican spots emerge in Aurora
It was the bright-colored mural that lured me into the parking lot of La California, a two-week-old taqueria and panaderia at 1685 Peoria Street that's turning out asada and adobada tacos, gorditas and tostadas de ceviche and carnitas de puerco and pozole from a boxy, bare-bones joint with a small open kitchen bossed by one woman whose smile is wider than the Gulf of Mexico.
Damn, I love Aurora.
