FRIDA TACOS is extremely proud to be a participant in this amazing event, which gathers over 80 vendors and celebrates the art of signature Mexican cuisine. Several of our Taste of Mexico amigos will be there too, including Coni’ Seafood, La Monarca Bakery, Loteria and Mexicali. And if you’re wondering what will be on the FRIDA menu, prepare yourself for endless plates of pollo, carnitas, steak and cochinita pibil!

Tacolandia is also putting a big emphasis on FUN, with live mariachi music, cocktails and a special awards celebration honoring LA’s best vendors (don’t forget to vote for FRIDA 😉 ). If that wasn’t enough, attending Tacolandia also helps a very good cause. This year, a portion of every ticket sold will go to benefit the El Pueblo Park Association, which honors the historic culture of Los Angeles.

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.

Special Pre-Sale Price For Taste Of Mexico Tickets!

15 Jul

Hola FRIDA fans,

Back by popular demand, our TASTE OF MEXICO event is returning to downtown Los Angeles this October. And best of all, we’re offering a special pre-sale price if you enter the promotional code LASFF13 before buying your tickets.

Now as you probably know, TOM has become one of Southern California’s most popular “foodie” phenomenons. Not only is FRIDA a major participant, so is Guelaguetza, La Monarca Bakery and La Casita Mexicana. And this year, several other top Mexican restaurants have signed on too, including Loteria, MexiKosher, Coni’Seafood, Yuca’s and Casa Oaxaca!

Keep in mind that TOM covers a lot more than Mexican appetizers, entrees and desserts. We’ll be serving up delicious margaritas too, as well as high-end tequilas and buckets of cold cerveza. We’ll also have an evening’s worth of live entertainment, including some of the most talented mariachis in SoCal! The event takes place during Hispanic Heritage Month at downtown L.A.’s La Plaza de Cultura y Artes. October 11 is the big day and we’ll be selling both traditional entry tickets and special VIP packages!

Now here’s the really good part. Through the end of this month, fans can get $20 off the VIP price by entering the promotional code LASFF13 on Eventbrite. If you want a discount off the regular price, enter the code LASFF. Either way, it’s win/win and a fantastic way to spend an October Friday night.

Just remember, the discounts only work until July 31. So make sure to visit Eventbrite and get your tickets today.

See you all at TASTE OF MEXICO 2013!
