Laurel District

Upper Fruitvale


When I first saw this place I thought it was a pretty ordinary working class neighborhood. But as I began to look around I discovered it was a wonderful place to explore. There are a number of Asian, Latino and organic markets, a Tibetan Buddhist temple and the historic Pacific Hacienda Park. There are several fun restaurants including Los Arcos which serves fresh orange juice direct from the orange to your glass and excellent seafood. Pupuseria Lupita across the street serves pastelito de pollo (a pastry shell filled with chicken) and salad for $2.
