Today was a nice, warm and sunny day. It felt like springtime. I drove to the artist village, and parked at the same parking structure on 3rd Street. Since the artist village was mostly closed during the daytime hours, I browsed on 4th Street Market, which reminded me of a mini version of downtown LA’s garment district. There were stores, street vendors, cafes, and restaurants. I bought two Duritos bags from a street vendor, but I think I bought the ready made ones that you can eat right away. I really was looking for the ones I fry over the stove and watch it expand. I walked to Broadway and 1st Street, and I noticed it was quiet during daylight. But there were still a lot of traffic, and there were many people eating lunch at restaurants, cafes, and Gypsy Den. I think I have eaten at The Lab’s Gypsy Den in Costa Mesa. I walked everywhere within one hour, and I decided to go home. The Artist Village is more interesting during the nighttime hours.
I tasted the Mexican Duros, and it tasted like those veggie chips because it has the same puffy and airy but crunchy texture. It tastes light.
I went on the internet to look for a local Mexican grocery store that sells the other kind of Duros. I found one around the same area, and I might go tomorrow to get some.
I took some snapshots of the 4th Street Market but I haven’t uploaded the photos yet. I noticed many people were just relaxing and having their Saturday Brunch.
