Since I started frequenting Tacos Los Altos, I'm not very likely to return to Salsa Brava, especially since it gets so busy now. There used to be a west side location, which I preferred, but they moved out, and the place that replaced it (El Capitan) is not as good.
The owner started a new restaurant nearby, called Fat Olives, about which I've heard very good things. I would like to check it out sometime.
Whenever a good local restaurant gets too popular and loses its appeal for me, it reminds me of my favorite place to eat when I was in Detroit, called the Traffic Jam & Snug. They made their own ice cream, cheese, sausage, etc., and had great nightly specials that were not on their regular menu. The most decadent dessert I ever had was called the Carlotta Chocolotta: chocolate cheesecake topped with coffee-mocha ice cream and sprinkled with ground espresso beans.
Then the place was "discovered". As the crowds went up, the prices also went up and the portions shrank, and the food just didnít seem as good anymore. Before long, I lost the desire to return.
