“Taqueando, ‘to taco.’ It’s not just cuisine…it’s a lifestyle.”
Out of the ashes of Tacolandia, a phoenix has risen, and that phoenix is called Taqueando! L.A.’s newest all-you-can-eat taco festival takes place Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 1 PM until 5 PM. Organizer Bill Esparza is perhaps the ultimate authority on Los Angeles’ taco scene. Feast on both traditional and innovative tacos curated by Bill and created by chefs from Southern California, Mexico, and even Europe!
All of our favorite taquerias will be there, like Amor y Tacos, Aqui es Texcoco, B.S. Taqueria, Burritos La Palma, Cacao Mexicatessen, Carnitas El Momo, Chichen Itza, Coni’Seafood, Dia de los Puercos, Guerrilla Tacos, Macheen, Mariscos El Coraloense, Mariscos Jalisco, Petty Cash Taqueria, Pez Cantina, Sonoratown, Tacos 1986, and Michelin Bib Gourmand winner Taco Maria.
There will also be Cheesecake from Chef Turok, ice cream from Peekaboo, and treats from Monarca Bakery. Sponsored by the likes of Tecate and Don Julio, you are sure to have something delicious to quench your thirst. For teetotalers and designated drivers, the Taquendo is also sponsored by Agua Lucha, and additional drinks will be provided by Jarritos and Califia Cold Brew. Sounds by dublab.
