La Super Rica Taqueria opened in 1982, and continues to get accolades from various sources. We were drawn to it, when Julia Child endorsed La Super Rica as one of her favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. Then the Robb Report had it on its Top 100 restaurants. When we lived in Los Angeles, we would often drive up for the day on the weekend to have lunch there.
Now Katy Perry, a Santa Barbara native, has immortalized the restaurant in her song, "This is How We Do", which gives a shout-out to La Super Rica in the second verse. You can even see the building outline in the video graphics.
We had lunch there on Monday, and it still as good as the first time we ate there. There is always a line out the door to order, and on weekends it is goes down the block.
