Used to eat at La Superica all the time. I do the same as Simone with meals I have eaten out.

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

La Super Rica is legendary. I've been eating there for 30 years...(hmmmm...maybe that's the problem!).

Actually, the serving sizes are very small, so if you are moderate in ordering, I think you'll be fine. Also, with almost every taco, they have two small corn tortillas--I ask my husband to split a taco with me--he gets one tortilla, I get one tortilla, and we split the "goods" (usually the Rajas since we're vegetarians, and the guacamole)--I've successfully lost weight while including this as a meal...keep your portions small and enjoy yourself!

Travel Light...

I have no idea how many calories are in the food, but follow Simone's advice.

Did you know that place is in 1000 Places To See Before You Die? That's how my husband and I found it. Julia Child recommended it at some point in her life, and it made the pages of the book. It's in the Pacific Coast Highway section :)

There is always something waiting for you at the end of the road. If you're not willing to find out what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there in the first place.

I haven't eaten there (I have my own favorite Mexican hole-in-the-walls that I prefer), but what I've done when I eat out at places like this is that I use the nutrition tracker to kind of recreate the meal with input from other users. For example, when you're adding your food, click on the box at the bottom that says something like "include food added by other users" and then try "mexican beans" or "mexican rice" and whatever else was included in that meal. You'll usually get a lot of hits, and just find one that seems about right. Sometimes the challenge is if they say "1 serving," you may not be able to tell how much a serving is. The reason to look as what other users have inputted instead of just getting beans and rice off of the SP nutrition info, is that often Mexican food has some extra lard in the beans, rice has been cooked with oil, etc. However, if you search SP's nutrition database, they might have a few of those kinds of things included.

Good luck1!

I had the #16 this afternoon and I'm trying to account for calories. Any one have any guesses? It was a passilla platter. I split it with my Dad.
