The actor Alfonso Herrera, along with a group of Mexican partners, inaugurated “La Carmencita“, a restaurant of “oracular cuisine” that seeks to rescue and dignify the Baja Californian food.
In addition to Herrera, the entrepreneur Francisco Navarro and the chef Luis Cárdenas were in charge of giving life to the project, which is located in Los Angeles, California.
“Today more than ever and due to the social and political situation that the United States is going through, it is important to publicize Mexico’s wealth, away from stereotypes. We Mexicans have an obligation to contribute clearer, deeper and more positive visions of what we are and a very good way to do it is through our flavors“, said Alfonso.
As a 100% Mexican concept, “La Carmencita” seeks to respect the ingredients and processes of the typical dishes of Baja California, as well as the talent of two young chefs led by Luis Cárdenas.
“Oracular Kitchen is a unique concept of ‘La Carmencita‘, which seeks to have a eclectic menu, where you can find spontaneous, with the freshness of the catch of the day” Navarro said, creator of the concept.
To complement the experience, the muralist – also Mexican – “Libre Hem” was in charge of transforming the walls of the enclosure to make “La Carmencita” a complete experience.
Their octopus tacos were recently recognized among the top 10 in Los Angeles, but coconut ceviche and huachinango are also among the public favorites.
