Welcome to THE MOUTH of the South Bay

Hello and welcome to South Bay Mouth.

 Many of you may already know why this is site is called The Mouth, but for those that don't, locals commonly call the South Bay, "Mouth Bay."  The South Bay is a section of  South Los Angeles County encompassing a cluster of beach cities.

For a long time now I have wanted to create a place where locals and visitors alike can see what is going on and available to them in the South Bay.  Although I have lived most of my life in the area, I realize there is so much to do and see that I was never aware of.  I hear of great events and local fun and often when I share it with others they say they have lived here for so long and they never knew about it!  So, here we are... My hopes are that this site will provide something new to improve the quality of your life in the South Bay.  I do believe this site will be beneficial to both those living the single life and to families.  Please visit the South Bay Mouth often to stay on top of special events, new restaurants/shops, bargains and sales, reviews and opinions, bands and music, a video from an aspiring Chef or even just a photo of a beautiful sunset.

Stay tuned for updates and posts and please leave comments and share us with your friends.

Ortega 120

Ortega 120 is a great Mexican Restaurant in Redondo Beach.  If you do not look carefully you may pass it up and miss it entirely.  I can only imagine the number of people that drive by, take notice of its uniqueness and then continue driving by.  This funky and modern Restaurant and Cantina opened in a strip mall faced housing area on PCH between Prospect and Palos Verdes Blvd., taking over a location that has quite a bit of turnover since its fruition.  

I remember randomly running across a myspace page a few years back for a young man, a chef, that said he would be soon opening a restaurant and that it would be a very new and different kind of place.  The management is generous to my understandings, they participated in sponsoring my 10 year high school reunion and offered a $50 gift certificate to our raffles.  A friend of mine mentioned the other day how he loves this restaurant and I told him I saw they were having a promotion on Restaurant.com, so we should go together.  Next thing I know, today I went with a few friends and we used our $25 Gift Certificate from Restaurant.com.  

The food was wonderful, we were all very happy with our choices.  The flavors were great, the portions were perfect and the presentation was distinctly different for each entree.  I might just consider the fresh homemade chips and guacamole to be the best I have had in the South Bay.  I definitely also recommend getting enchiladas with their homemade Mole sauce.  Not only was the food great and the service friendly, but with tax and tip after our discount the bill came to $53 which was a fair amount for happy bellies.  

*side note - the only beans they have are made with meat and have chunks of meat in them, there are no alternatives to this.*
