1501 Solano Ave (at Curtis St), Albany

I actually wrote a little blurb about Fonda a couple years ago on Astrarium, and I figured I was long overdue for a trip back, especially as it seems to have survived quite nicely in a time when many restaurants are closing left and right. I arrived in the middle of the dinner rush on a very-warm evening, and boisterous patrons were spilling out onto the patios out front. I chose a place at the bar and ordered the grilled skirt steak. It arrived perfectly arranged on a bed of cactus and avocado salad and the tiniest cherry tomatos ever with the plate studded with mild cheese. Delicious! There was enough to generously fill 3 warm corn tortillas, and I especially liked the twist of lime flavor.
