‘Tis The Season For FRIDA CATERING!

6 Dec

Feliz Diciembre!

We have officially entered the holiday season and, with just a few more weeks until Christmas, the time is perfect for hosting a party catered by FRIDA! Whether it’s for the office, for family members or just an intimate gathering of friends, we can accommodate fiestas of every size.

One of the great benefits of living in California is the December sunshine. And (other than the slight rainfall we had last week) we have actually hosted several outdoor catering events this time of year. Our founder Vicente was on hand for a recent corporate buffet, which utilized custom enchilada platters. As you can see below, every job is entirely unique and we are more than happy to tailor a menu to your needs.

For offices, we have created unique appetizers that highlight FRIDA ceviche, chicken quesadillas and even our trademark margaritas.

Christmas is an ideal time for tamales and you can bet that our kitchen will have plenty of prepared platters for the Nochebuena celebrations. We can even do them as take out orders (in case you want to fool the family into thinking that you cooked them yourself 😉 ).

FRIDA CATERING delivers throughout the greater Los Angeles area and guarantees a prompt and efficient experience. And if you prefer restaurant holiday parties, we can arrange that too. Sections of our Beverly Hills or Westwood dining rooms can easily be siphoned off for big groups or you can reserve the whole place for an evening.

The same goes for New Year’s too. Did you know that FRIDA CATERING can arrange for one of signature bartenders to come to your home and create custom NYE cocktails? It will certainly add to the fun once the giant ball drops!

The Lighter Side Of FRIDA

21 Jan

Let’s be honest, Mexican food always seems to get a bad rep in the calorie department. Yes it’s delicious, but terms like “carnitas” and “enchiladas” can strike fear in dieter’s hearts. Well for the record, we at FRIDA keep all of our meals healthy, fresh, and light (no lard, no Nachos Bellgrandes, no carb-heavy appetizers). BUT, we know sometimes that isn’t always enough.

With the new year comes new resolutions and it seems like one of 2012’s most popular ones is to slip back into those skinny jeans. So if you’re looking to cut back, go vegan, or simply switch to Diet Cokes, FRIDA has got you covered.

For instance, did you know that our salads are some of our most popular menu items? That’s right and we’ve got four yummy ones to pick from. One ENSALADA choice is the Al Tequila, a lovely mix of green lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers tossed with a citrus-tequila vinaigrette. Tuna and avocados are optional, depending on how much you want to splurge.

There is also the tradional Cesar (served with light dressing) and, one of our personal faves, the Resplandor de Mango! This guilt-free feast is prepared with grapes, walnuts, mixed greens, and chopped mangos. Top it off with our passion fruit dressing and you’ll be in low cal heaven!

Another tasty option is our Fajitas Mixtas. You can have these specially prepared with lean chicken or go with the “veggie” style (which includes sauteed tomatoes and green bell peppers).

If you’re feeling fishy, definitely try one of our light Ceviche choices. Ceviche Pulpo is a great place to start. Fresh octopus, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lime juice. Simple, healthy and muy delicioso!

And keep in mind that at FRIDA, we’re more than eager to customize! We’ll be happy to alter any menu selection to your preference. Want to swap out meat for chicken? No prob! Craving extra veggies instead of beans? You got it! Just come on by and bring your lean appetite…we’ll take care of the rest.
