La Penca Azul, Park St., Alameda, CA.
Don’t ask why I decided to use a tartan as the backdrop for a brother eating in a Mexican restaurant. I don’t really have a good answer. I will say, however, that the next time you go to La Penca Azul, order the Naked Chicken Wings (not the buffalo wings, but the naked wings). They come served with the sauce of your choice, and the menu lists a bunch of different sauces to choose from. So far I’m eaten my wings with the first sauce on the list (I can’t remember what it was called), and I’ve also had the chipotle sauce, which was quite different from what I expected but also really tasty.
