Is Norwalk famous for any kind of restaurant or food in particular? What's the local favorite?
Located on Norwalk's Alondra Boulevard, Senor Baja boasts the tastiest Mexican food around. Visit this local hotspot on Mondays or Wednesday for Senor Baja's famous 99-cent fish tacos. They take only the freshest fish, fry it up on the spot, serve it with cilantro, cabbage, onions, tomatoes, and Senor Baja's own delectable white sauce, and wrap it all up in a freshly made corn tortilla. Some other favorite dishes include the carne asada burrito, shrimp burrito, chicken tacos, and horchata- a deliciously sweet blend of cinnamon, rice, and milk. This hole-in-the-wall local gem is known for its quick and accommodating service, as well as Senor Baja's "condiment counter" offering an array of seasonings including limes, peppers, and homemade red and green salsas.

How much are utilities in Norwalk?
Utilities can vay widely depending on your family size and the size of your home. A family of three living in Norwalk should expect to pay an average of about $300 per month for utilities. Because the summers are so hot, your utilities bill will certainly be highest from June through August, when you'll be using the air conditioning regularly. Heating expenses are usually not much of an issue since there are few months when you really need to turn on the furnace; and then, it's typically at night.
