Instead of Taco Tuesday, Sweden Celebrates Taco Friday

BY MICHELE DEBCZAK

If you think Swedish cuisine is limited to meatballs and herring, you've never celebrated Fredagsmys—the Swedish version of Taco Tuesday. The day, which translates to "cozy Fridays," is a chance for Swedes to get together with loved ones and eat comfort food at the end of a long week. And instead of indulging in more traditional Swedish fare, the Fredagsmys cuisine of choice is Tex-Mex.

Top 10 Taco Tuesdays in Los Angeles

Duke’s

Duke’s Malibu honors surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku, but also pays tribute to the early days of surfing in Malibu. Adding to the lore, Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, the inspiration for the Gidget novel, movie and TV series that sparked the California surfing craze, works at Duke’s Malibu as their Ambassador of Aloha. We recommend their two tacos with chips & salsa for $14. They pair perfectly with the Spicy Cucumber Margarita with Herradura silver, agave, fresh lime, jalapeño, cucumber for $14.

Tu Madre West Hollywood

Tu Madra has been making tacos and breakfast burritos with love since 2015. Their food celebrates flavors from across the city with a diverse array of ingredients and cooking techniques, including slow-roasted and braised meats and house-made fermented chili salsas. Plant-based tacos, burritos, and bowls are available so vegans can fiesta too. We have fallen in love with their West Hollywood locations AND their red velvet churros. They have Street Tacos for $2.40 all day, featuring the V-K BBQ plant-based taco with pickled fresnos and cilantro, a rotisserie chicken with salsa roja and queso panela, and brisket taco with onions and cilantro.

Amor y Tacos

Amor Y Tacos is a multi-award-winning full-service restaurant specializing in Alta Californian cuisine. Their flavors are inspired by Chef Ortega’s Mexican roots growing up as a Chicano in Los Angeles, featuring a chef-driven kitchen and craft cocktail bar using the highest quality, fresh and natural ingredients. Their Taco Tuesday specials are available from 2-10pm. We recommend their tacos, choice of short rib, chicken, carnitas or veggie for $2.75. All served with salsa, cilantro and onion.

Te'kila

Te’kila is LA’s go-to tequila oasis, boasting over 150 different bottles. Their daily happy hour – featuring made-to-order margaritas – is a draw for visitors and locals alike. On Tuesdays, they have tacos all day, choice of chicken, asada steak, carnitas for $2 if you order three and purchase of a drink. We highly recommend the Te’kila Margarita with fresh lime juice, orange juice, agave nectar, and El Jimador Blanco Tequila for $12. They also have $3 vegan taco options.

Long Beach Taco Co.

Their authentic Mexican cuisine, hand-made tortillas & brunch are why they are one of LA’s favorite go-to spots. They have 36 craft beers and delicious late-night grub. We recommend their $2 tacos, choice of asada, baja fish, birria, chicken, carnitas, fried avocado, calabasitas, mushroom, rajas (peppers) con queso, and the OG with veggies, beans, and guacamole. They go great with their 32-ounce micheladas.

El Cholo Santa Monica

El Cholo is LA's very first Mexican restaurant. Since first opening their doors in 1923, El Cholo has operated as a family-owned business and today, the restaurants are run by Ron Salisbury, grandson of the founders. We recommend going to their Santa Monica location for some fresh ocean air, the $5 Tres Cantina Tacos & $7 El Cholo Margaritas all day long. 

SaMo’s Oaxaca

This family-owned restaurant serves authentic Oaxacan and Mexican casual food. They’re open for takeout, delivery and offer outside patio seating. Their menu boasts Tlayudas, Mole, Tortas, Tacos, California Burrito, Oax Burrito and so much more. On Tuesday from 3pm to 8pm they offer 3 tacos with your choice of meat for $6.

Founded by Jesse Gomez with partner/chef Jose Acevedo, Mercado takes pride in offering a traditional yet contemporary experience that has paved the way for elevated Mexican cuisine that is accessible to everyone. On Tuesdays, from 5pm to 7pm enjoy a wide variety of drool worthy tacos from $7 to $12

Petite Taqueria

Open all day, this West Hollywood restaurant puts a unique spin on Mexican cuisine. If you’re looking for a place to grab some crave-worthy food, Petite Taqueria provides a trendy dining experience that will leave you full with a smile. We can’t get enough of their Soft and Crispy Shell Tacos with choice of chicken, baja fish or steak for $2. Margaritas are $9 but ½ off margarita pitchers all night long are our favorite!

Lola's Mexican Cuisine

Established in 2007, the Lola’s family has always had a love affair with Mexican recipes that have been passed down for generations. Everything is made from scratch and their vegan options are plentiful. Their menu changes with the seasons and the availability of ingredients. On Tuesdays, we recommend their $2 tacos with choice of mesquite grilled chicken, carne asada, or zucchini mushroom. You can’t go wrong with their specialty tacos for $2.50 too. Don’t miss the Mexican Coca-Cola glazed carnitas birria. They have Modelo Especial on draft for $3 or pitches for $10.50, but we dream about their Mexican Lollipop Shots: tequila, fresh squeezed lime, watermelon purée, and Tajin rim for $4.

Descanso-An OC Mexican Dining Experience

By Jessica Wilburn

You know the saying "Taco Tuesday"?  It is part of our weekly lives as a Southern California community.  We are blessed with many options to choose from: the fast-food version, the make it at home yourself version, the taco truck version, the happy hour version, and so on.  Now I can't say "Taco Tuesday" without thinking of the BEST taco Tuesday experience my family has ever had!  I am NOT exaggerating!  It was a night to be remembered and to be repeated monthly.

I have heard of Descanso restaurant several times over the years.  I didn't know much about this restaurant and because the restaurant is in Costa Mesa, I didn't give it much thought. I was then given the opportunity to experience their TAQUERO Tuesday in the Plancha room which is an immersive experience as you watch your food being prepared right in front of you.  The place was packed which is a good sign to me as that shows a great repeat business and people were happy all around us.

25 Types of Tacos

From al pastor to huitlacoche. 

By Serena Maria Daniels 

The taco is deceptively simple by reputation, tortilla, filling, and perhaps some garnishes or salsa on top. But the reality is that so much goes into the preparation for the myriad fillings of the ubiquitous taco that to dismiss this handheld meal as no more than street food is a huge disservice. Mexican food is a UNESCO-designated cultural treasure, and in the taco category, these vessels of masa, meat or meat-like proteins and spice are widely varied.

But it's also easy to get lost among all the options to stuff in tortillas and fall back on the basics. Which is fine, but if you're not exploring the wide world of taco fillings, you're doing your palate a disservice. To give you the knowledge you need to live your best taco life, we enlisted the expertise of Steven Alvarez, an assistant English professor at St. John’s University in Queens who came to fame when he started teaching a taco literacy course at the University of Kentucky.
