Thanks To All Who Joined Us For TASTE OF MEXICO 2013!

17 Oct

What an incredible Friday we had last week. To our delight, hundreds of Mexican food fans descended upon LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes for TASTE OF MEXICO 2013. The turnout was spectacular and included guests from all across Southern California.

To our sheer delight, Mexican Ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora kicked off the event with an impassioned speech about Mexican culture and its impact on Los Angeles. From there, the famous TOM chefs gathered for photo opps and meet-and-greets, sharing “trade secrets” with dozens of fans.

Our own Vicente Del Rio proved to be quite popular, getting interviewed for local news outlets and proudly shaking hands with a huge line of FRIDA fans. As for our comida selections, we proudly served up our famous Carnitas, Pollo and Steak Tacos and had delicious ceviche samplings (much like what you’ll find at the FRIDA Westwood Brunch).

Fans made sure to show their FRIDA love, even donning apparel inspired by our famous namesake.

One huge highlight was getting the opportunity to hang with our friend Kate Del Castillo. One of Spanish television’s most popular stars, “La Reina Del Sur” couldn’t have been more gracious. She happily posed with fans and scored us quite a few ReTweets from her picture with Vicente.
