Located on a small corner near the Santa Monica beach, Cha Cha Chicken is like a tiny urban oasis. Its brightly painted, ramshackle patio setup is hidden from the street by tropical foliage whose planting can best be described as cattywampus, and the Legoland-island vibe is completed by thatch shade umbrellas and sprouting ferns. It kind of resembles how a Jamaican backyard cookout might feel, minus the reggae. The food, by the way, is deceptively amazing. We recommend anything featuring jerk chicken, especially the enchiladas. Or just ask for a suggestion from the helpful guy at the counter.
