Hola friends,

We hope you’ve been enjoying hot tacos and cool horchatas during these warm days of summer. Believe it or not, Fall is right around the corner and we’ve got a great way to usher in the flavors of the season. On September 27, FRIDA TACOS will be participating in the 4th Annual TASTE OF MEXICO event, bringing our signature menu items to LA’s Plaza De Culturas Y Artes.

Last year we hosted TOM at the Plaza for the very first time and it turned into an amazing night. We were joined by celebrated stars (nice picture, Vincente!)

…political leaders like Mexican Ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora.

…and of course, some of the most amazing chefs in Southern California.

This year promises to be EVEN BETTER, with partners like El Condor, Tortas Bravas and Mexicali Tacos (just to name a few). And lets not forget the founding members, like La Casita Mexicana, Guelaguetza and La Monarca Bakery.

Hello friends!

We hope everyone is enjoying another beautiful California summer. This has actually been an incredibly busy season for FRIDA TACOS, as we have now opened our new Pasadena location!

IMG_8120

Within the last month, we’ve seen a fantastic turnout for our new shop. Eastside foodies have dropped in for cold cervezas, World Cup viewings and our signature menu of delicious Mexican cuisine!

If you haven’t had the chance to visit yet, we’d love to fill you in on some of this restaurant’s unique details. For starters, FRIDA TACOS Pasadena is open more hours any of our other shops! Sunday-Thursday we’re serving tacos until midnight and on weekends, we keep the lights on until 3am! (Just like FRIDA Melrose)

Our new location also has a stocked fridge of Modelos, Coronas and XX’s with happy hour prices in the afternoon!

And let’s not forget about the amazing artistry. Designer Jose Antonio Gonzalez has done an amazing job colorizing our walls with icons, lucha warriors and even a few hidden surprises.

But of course, what we’re most proud of is the delicious food we’re cooking fresh in the kitchen. Just like all of our restaurants, we’ve got full breakfast menus, salads, soups, tortas, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, nachos, sopes and of course, those world famous TACOS! 😉

16 Apr

Hello FRIDA TACOS fans!

First off, we want to thank you for all of your continued support. Because of loyal taco lovers like you, we have been able to launch three successful FT locations in the past four years. And now, we are very proud to announce FRIDA TACOS #4 (also known as FRIDA TACOS: Old Town).

That’s right, we will now be serving delicious tacos, burritos, taquitos, nachos, ensaladas and sopes to customers in the 323 and 626 area codes! But where exactly will the new shop be?

That’s the fun part…Construction is already underway, but we want you to guess the new location! Use these pictures as a clue and know that we’ll be very close the next time you want to tailgate a Rose Bowl game. 😉

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s bracket season all over LA. Most everyone has got their picks in line for the NCAA March Madness showdown…But have you selected the finalists for the TACO MADNESS championship?

For the past several years now, L.A. Taco has bringing this battle to Mexican food fans all across SoCal.

FRIDA TACOS Holidays!

8 Dec

Is everyone excited about the December holidays? We sure are and have tons of exciting updates to share. In case you haven’t noticed, our FRIDA TACOS locations have gotten a lot more festive in recent weeks. Tinsel is flowing all across Melrose, Brentwood and the Westside Pavilion.

Over at the Country Mart, we’ve gotten tons of holiday shoppers looking for unique gifts and tasty Mexican food! We’ve also got the one-and-only Santa Claus making an appearance on December 14 and December 21! Make sure to drop by for pictures between 12p-2p and if you’re feeling extra generous, offer him a FRIDA TACO!

The Westside Pavilion has some fantastic decorations too (and plenty of sales for you last-minute shoppers). We’re having a ton of fun adding merriment to the food court and are extra excited about the mall’s Santa Paws Pet Night on December 16! Make sure to bring the entire fam…and a hearty tostada appetite.

And in good old Melrose, the holidays are getting a artsy twist. Ok, so the picture above might not be of the jolly elves, but at least it’s using the Christmas colors, right? All of you who enjoy getting your “party” on during winter break should definitely stop by the TACO shop. As always, we’ll be serving hot Mexican treats until midnight on Weds and Thurs and until 3am Saturdays and Sundays.

And if you want to bring the FRIDA TACOS experience home, make sure to reach out to our catering staff. They can cook up everything from the menu and feed massive holiday parties.

So enjoy the chills of December and have a happy, healthy holiday season!

Halloween FRIDA Style!

28 Oct

Que pasa FRIDA TACOS fans,

It’s hard to believe that we’re just a few short days from Halloween. In honor of one of the year’s most popular holidays, we thought it would be fun to shoot out a few festive ideas…FRIDA style, of course. Both our TACOS and Mexican Cuisine restaurants will be celebrating All Hallow’s Eve and we encourage you to fill up your trick-or-treat bags with taquitos, burritos and churro desserts!

Now for all you Melrose locals, we recommend participating in the legendary West Hollywood Carnival. Just minutes from our restaurant, it packs the streets with nearly 500,000 people, dressed in every type of costume imaginable. There will also be live concerts and shuttles (so you can avoid the parking issues on Santa Monica Blvd). FRIDA TACOS will be open until midnight on Halloween and we recommend coming in for a hearty “pre-party” meal (or if you need some late night food to recover).

On the Brentwood side of town, the Country Mart (which houses our FRIDA TAQUERIA shop) will be hosting a family-friendly event on October 30. Running from 3-6p, it will have ghost stories, candy giveaways and plenty of plump pumpkins for photo opps. Just like every year, it’s a great Halloween event that trick-or-treaters of all ages can enjoy.

If you happen to live near our Westside Pavilion location, there are also a ton of fun events planned right inside the mall. Nearly every store will be handing out candy from 5-7p on Halloween night, making it a fun and safe alternative to knocking on strangers’ doors. We’ll have plenty of treats cooked up in the food court too, including our famous FRIDA churros and flan!

And let’s not forget the day AFTER Halloween. Dia de los Muertos is a big tradition in Mexican culture and our FRIDA Westwood restaurant is already gearing up, with special sugar skull altars and cobweb decorations. That Friday of November 1, we’ll be welcoming in both Muertos partygoers and festive Halloween fans who want to keep the momentum going. And make sure to ask about our “Blood Red” Margaritas, before calling it a night!

So be safe and have fun this week. And don’t forget to stop by FRIDA TACOS for some special Halloween treats!

FRIDA TACOS’ Menu Just Got Bigger!

26 Aug

If you learn one word in Spanish today, make it “Grande.” Because that’s how we’re describing the brand new FRIDA TACOS menu. Now, in addition to all your favorite Tacos and Burritos, we’re offering 7 different types of Tortas, as well as Burrito Bowls, delicious Sope deals and hot Tortilla Soup!

19092_n

There are also a variety of new morning menu items, including our signature Breakfast Burrito. That’s right, for just $6.95 you can get a fully loaded tortilla with eggs, bacon, cheese, sour cream, tomato and guacamole. We’re also offering hot Chilaquiles (aka crispy corn tortillas with red and/or green sauce, topped with shredded chicken and queso fresco). Trust us, these dishes will wake you up THE RIGHT WAY before you step into that a.m. meeting.

FRIDA TACOS
is also serving yummy dessert items, including the delicious Flan recipe made famous by our sister restaurant. We’ve also got Churros with all the fixings, including chocolate sauce, whipped cream and Mexican cinnamon that’ll drive your sweet tooth wild!

And did we mention our new drink varieties? Sure you can grab a basic Coca-Cola or Sprite. But if you want to add some real authenticity to your Mexican meal, try our freshly brewed Agua de Jamaica or Agua de Tamarindo. We’ve also got a great selection of Jarritos bottles, which DEFINITELY hit the spot.

And as always, our Tacos and Burritos come with the finest fresh ingredients. Just place the order, then choose from our signature Asada, Pollo, Carnitas, Cochinita Pibil and Pastor selections. We even offer Veggie alternatives if you prefer to keep your meals meatless.
