In 2010, The Taste of Mexico Association was created by LA’s top Mexican restaurateurs. Their annual food event attracts LA’s best cultural tastemakers and influencers. I was lucky enough to attend their event this year, and the endless tacos, tostadas, tortas, and more were an absolute treat! Below are some of my favorites!
Taco de Chile Colorado from Candela Taco Bar
Squid Taco from Guerrilla Tacos
Taco de Chile Nogada and Taco Dulce from Loteria Grill
Al Pastor Taco from Dia de los Puercos
Guacamole and Chapulines from Cocina Condesa (Yes, those are grasshoppers; and, they were delicious!)
Tuna tostada from Ceviche Project
There were so many other notable dishes; its’ impossible to list them all! The music and marketplace at the event were also top-notch. I highly recommend keeping your eye out for next year’s event! For more information, visit http://www.thetasteofmexico.org/.
