Cha Cha Chicken
Cha Cha Chicken is a brightly colored Carribean style beach shack/restaurant on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. They serve fresh, authentic Carribean cuisine, with everything prepared in house and their fish delivered daily - their Coconut Chicken was even featured on the Food Networks 'Best Thing I Ever Ate'. I haven't actually tried that dish but a friend of mine is always raving about it!
This is a really fun restaurant with a super casual atmosphere, and you are able to bring your own wine or beer which helps to keep it even more reasonable than it already is. It's good for groups - if someone gets there early to save a table - as Cha Cha Chicken is often super busy and they don't take reservations, so waiting in line for food and a table can be a bit of a pain.
Overall it's a really cool vibe with fresh food and a fun atmosphere, and definitely worth at least checking out.
