We decided to eat at the Cocina Cucamonga for dinner because Mexican food sounded good and my husband is really into trying beers at California Adventure. He only drinks one but he likes it now, I think a long day at the park gets to him.. ha ha Either way, he's happy, so give him a beer!
The menu at Cocina Cucamonga is pretty short and simple. We always, always look at the selections for kids before we decide to eat somewhere. Bean and cheese burrito or chicken and cheese quesadillas were perfect for our kids.
My husband ordered the Carne Asada and Chicken Tamale plate for 11.99 and a Dos Equis Ambar for $7.00. I ordered the Chicken Tamales plate for 9.99 and a large coke for $3.49. Samantha ordered the Bean and Cheese burrito kids meal and my son ordered the chicken quesadilla, both are $6.99 and include a fruit punch, milk or water.
Jeremy lost his first tooth at California Adventure. Here he is in line at Cocina Cucamonga.
If you want Mexican food, this is the only place I know of on the California Adventure side serving it. I have not tried everything on the Pier though, there may be more... if you know of one, please do write it in the comments section below because I would love to try it. Here is a picture inside the pick up window...whacky lady with camera!
We sat over by the water to eat because that's our favorite spot when eating on the Pacific Wharf. Here is a picture of the kids meals, bean and cheese and chicken quesadilla. Both have applesauce, brown rice and vegetables and a drink.
The rice was just okay for me but the tamale was really good. I like the salsa they gave me on the side, it was fabulous.
My husband got the Carne Asada plate but the meat was too thick and tough for his liking so I'm glad I got the two tamales instead....and for two dollars cheaper I might add.
The presentation is lovely and overall everything was pretty good. They serve beer here, so don't wait in line at the truck. The beer truck line was SO long and here we are drinking beer and eating tamales while they all suffer in line.
