Everything at Las Brisas #2 Mexican Food is made from scratch, from the tortilla chips and salsa to the al pastor burritos. This family business has been doling out burritos, enchiladas, and tacos since 1982, though every made-from-scratch component of the meals lends itself to multitude of dishes. The al pastor, which is shepherd-style pork, is a customer favorite, and diners can request the meat in a burrito, in a combo plate, or by the pound to take home to freeze for re-creating tasty meals or icing a black eye. Other options include chile rellenos, seafood dishes such as camarones a la diabla, and beef and seafood soups.

Aesthetician Ericka opened CLEAN by Siren Lyric Muse to share her philosophies about health and beauty with others. "Our lives are continuously being run by our careers," she observes on her website, and "it is important that we take the time to balance ourselves." Given this, it's not surprising that skin health is one of Ericka's top values, and the treatments she offers at CLEAN reflect this priority.
Skin treatments rely both on healthy vitamins and glycolic acid. Mechanical treatments such as microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy help skin look younger. Skincare doesn't stop at the neck, however; services at the spa also include back and hand "facials." Ericka even curates spa packages, bundling extras such as champagne and lunch with sauna visits and paraffin foot soaks.
