Playa Azul is my favorite restaurant. It's at 29th
Street and Mission. It's a Salvadorean restaurant.
The name means ""blue beach."" I go every time
there's a birthday for someone in my family. My
parents give the person a surprise and they say
""wow!"" Six people always go: my mom, my dad,
my sisters Jessica and Diana, my uncle Ricardo,
The restaurant is big, it's blue, and it has pictures
of birds and a lot of tables. When they cook, the
fire goes up. I like the Caesar salad. It has fried
shrimp, chicken, white cheese, tomato, and lemon
sauce. Everyone in my family likes to get
tostadas, fish, meat, rice and beans, pupusas and
chicken. After I eat, I order a big strawberry
shake with whipped cream. Some people order
horchata. Older people drink margarita or Corona
I like to go to Playa Azul because I am
Salvadorean. My mom is from San Miguel and
my dad is from Ahuachap?in. I was born in
America but I have never been to El Salvador.
My mom likes to cook Salvadorean food at home
but she doesn't cook as well as the restaurant.
She taught me how to cook tostadas and tamales.
Tamales are made out of masa, chicken, potato,
and the juice of the chicken. I love Salvadorean
food! At Playa Azul I like to taste all my favorite
food. I recommend you go there.
