Last week, I joined the SoWal team for lunch at La Cocina. The restaurant has been open in its Seacrest Beach spot for over ten years and is well known for its Latin-inspired cuisine and great margaritas in a festive atmosphere. It's been high on my list of SoWal restaurants to experience, all of my expectations were fulfilled and more.
