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. 😉

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!

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.

FRIDA TACOS Is Now Open At The Westside Pavilion!

14 Dec

Have you noticed a lot more cars in the Westside Pavilion parking lot lately? Believe it or not, they’re not there to do their Christmas shopping, they’re there to munch down on FRIDA TACOS! That’s right, we have now officially opened our third restaurant and we’ve got hot plates waiting for you at the WP food court.

FRIDA TACOS fans have known about our expansion plans for quite a while now. Earlier in the year, we began conceptualizing what would be FT #3 and we’ve been filling in our Facebook & Twitter followers throughout the entire process. Using the amazing talents of Jose Antonio Gonzalez Architects, we re-imagined FRIDA TACOS‘ original style in a unique shopping mall setting.

Everyone from La Doña to the Lucha Warriors are making an appearance at our new Westside spot and hardcore fans can spot plenty of Easter Eggs in our signage throughout the mall. But the most important thing we’ve replicated are the delicious menus from our two FRIDA TACOS locations.

All of the Burritos, Tortas and Tostada Salads you love are in full-effect and prepared with the same TLC you can always expect from a FRIDA TACOS shop. So drop on by our new location at 10830 West Pico Boulevard for yummy TACO treats seven days a week (and bring a friend while you’re at it)!

Fashion Night Out At The Country Mart!

30 Aug

Feeling down that summer’s coming to an end? Us too, but to help cope with the shorter days and back-to-school traffic, the Brentwood Country Mart is kicking off a FASHION NIGHT OUT! And you can bet we’ll be there, suited up and ready to hand out delicious TACOS.

Taking place September 6 from 5-8pm, the Mart’s FNO has a ton of fun activities in store. There are great raffle prizes (featuring goodies from nearly all of the “Country” shops), designer clothes on display and even a performance by the rockabilly/country hybrid The Americans. And with daylight savings not yet taking effect, it’ll still be sunny and bright as we dance along the courtyard.

But what fun is a FASHION NIGHT OUT without food right? Well that’s where we come in. FRIDA TACOS will be serving up hot plates of your favorite Mexican dishes (and with some Monday Burrito specials to boot). Just remember to keep a few napkins handy, because the last thing we want to see is a salsa drop on your new FNO wardrobe.

So clear the schedule, dress to impress and join us for a wild fashion hootenanny Monday September 6 at the Country Mart!

Celebrate Cinco De Mayo At FRIDA TACOS!

30 Apr

How awesome is it that Cinco De Mayo 2012 falls on a Saturday?! Too many times, our tequila drinking dreams are squashed by the responsibilities of having to wake up early for school or work the next morning. Not this year, says FRIDA TACOS! And we’ll be keeping the party going until 3am!

Granted, we’re not the full-fledged cantina that’ll shoving Cuervo shots down your throat. But the truth is…We’re actually something better! Think of FRIDA TACOS as your Cinco sober-up spot.

Go ahead, have fun at the bars and mingle with your friends. But when that last call happens at 1:30am and you need some hangover prevention…you know where to go. We’re an easy taxi ride from anywhere in the city and we’ll be serving delicious Mexican food until the wee hours of the morning.

Of course, if you’d prefer to settle in for a Cinco house party, FRIDA TACOS has you covered too. We can whip up massive batches of comida to cater your fiesta (and at affordable prices too).

So make a date with FRIDA TACOS this Cinco Saturday, be it for lunch, dinner, or an after midnight snack!

March Madness FRIDA TACOS Style!

12 Mar

Got your brackets ready? NCAA March Madness is now in full effect and FRIDA TACOS wants to help you get your “munch” on during the season’s hottest games. First up, let’s recap a few of our favorite teams in the competition.

New Mexico and New Mexico State both have a keyword that we love. C’mon, how could we not support teams with “Mexico” in the title? Especially since we specialize in preparing succulent Mexican cuisine! Long Beach State is a biggie for us too, just because it’s So Cal and we’ve seen tons of gold and black sweatshirts passing through our Melrose shop. UNLV is in our bracket list too, partially because FRIDA TACOS make great accompaniments on a Vegas road trip.

And though we’re strictly L.A., we’ve got a lot of love for Cal and San Diego State as well. We’ve had students from both schools gobble up FRIDA TACOS while passing through the Country Mart and we’ll be backing them up the whole way through!

But March Madness season extends much further than basketball. It gives us the opportunity to fill in fun little brackets and trash talk with our friends. So we thought…Why not continue the tradition with the FRIDA TACOS menu?

Oh yes, we’ve decided to create our own special FRIDA TACOS MADNESS brackets, where items like the Pollo Burrito can go head-to-head with Vegetarian Sopes! Download a form HERE and keep checking our Twitter and Facebook updates to see who takes down the FT top prize!

Right now our money’s on the Nachos Platter!
