I stumbled upon Holbox when I was craving shrimp cocktail and seafood tacos on a sunny Saturday morning. It was less than 10 min away from DTLA and it has a five star Yelp review, which I’ve barely seen given that LA people probably have the most demanding taste. The place really has the best food and vibe! I can eat this on a daily basis and not get sick of it: they put so much heart and soul into the flavor, presentation and service. My boyfriend and I got their octopus dish🐙and shrimp cocktail🦐 for brunch. Their shrimp cocktail is so refreshing but also rich in favor with just the right amount of acidity. They are extremely generous about the amount of seafood and avocado they put in. Great on a sunny day in LA. Moving to the octopus dish: wood grilled octopus with homemade sauce and tortilla. The octopus was so tender and everything was freshly made. We did ask for more free chips and salsa to finish up the shrimp cocktail and leftover avocado from the octopus dish.
We sat outside on their cute tiled table and the weather was perfect. Lots of families were having a good time eating their food. There were also some random little kids dancing around us and having fun on their own. The vibe was just so enjoyable. Also this place is located in a food court. Unlike other food courts, they have people bringing the food out to you so you don't have to go back and forth. Everything was perfect and we will definitely come back!
