If you are looking for a place to let loose and grab a delicious bite to eat, look no further than the hipster hotspot Oscar’s Cerveteca in the popular beach district of Venice. Heralded as the joint with the best fish tacos in town, the establishment has drawn a loyal crowd since it cracked its first beer in 2011. With outdoor seating, a chill vibe, and amazing GLUTEN FREE tacos, it’s no wonder why the restaurant skyrocketed to success…
I mention beer because Oscar’s tagline reads “good food, and cold beer,” a possible nightmare for any gluten free diner. But don’t fret yet! The Cerveteca carries Green’s gluten free beer, a great option for all gluten free foodies who are craving a cold one. As far as the food goes, the Mexican fare is not to be missed, and with pure corn as the foundation of a variety of dishes, gluten free customers won’t have to opt out! I highly recommend any of the amazing tacos made with pure corn masa tortillas; the masa shells are made in-house and delicious. I usually go for the grilled organic chicken tacos, which are just as moist as they are flavorful. Mama’s ceviche with mango and cucumber is also a perfect gluten free option if you are looking to keep your meal light and fresh.
Cerveteca’s happy hour, Monday through Thursday 3pm-7pm and Fridays 3pm-6pm, is super popular and a great time to hit the restaurant. Tacos are sold at half price and the satisfying corn tortilla quesadilla will leave you wanting to return to the restaurant ASAP. Delicious, nobread approved options and a fun scene; Cerveteca is definitely worth checking out. I mean, what’s better than washing awesome food down with even better drinks amongst a lively crowd?
