Lotería Grill, Studio City

My childhood friend Brent recently moved to town, and between helping him apartment hunt, unpack and settle into his new digs, I hadn’t made time to take advantage of DineLA restaurant deals around town (Oct 3-8, Oct 10-15). The current DineLA promotion ends 10/15/10.

Loteria Grill – DineLA Restaurant Week 3-course, $16 lunch deal:

I chose from the DineLA menu, and ordered Brent a few Loteria Grill “must-have” dishes (his first time).

Pollo en Mole Verde de Michoacan
DineLA Lunch Menu item: Pollo en Mole Verde de Michoacan Chicken in a Green Mole of Michoacan

Loteria Grill's Heirloom Tomato Salad

Note: We chose the Galletas Mexicanas (house-baked Mexican cookies) for dessert, but I forgot to photograph before Brent finished them!

Michelada de Mango
Michelada de Mango (cerveza, fresh lime and mango, spicy salt rim). I’ve only had micheladas with spicy tomato. I really liked this fruity version! (NOT on the DineLA menu)

Loteria Grill's Chicharron de Queso
Chicharron de Queso: Griddle-toasted cheese. Served with Guacamole and Salsas. A MUST-ORDER at Loteria Grill! (NOT on the DineLA menu)
