Stopped in for a late night snack. La cabaña is open until 3. Typical old school Mexican restaurant menu until you come across the Chile rellenos. Great flavor, no batter. Service is efficient and friendly.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
