Taqueando Takeover

October 24 @ 5:30 pm - 11:00 pm

  • Location: 1850 Industrial Street, LA, CA 90021 (formerly Church & State)
  • Taqueando—an all-you-can-eat taco tasting festival featuring traditional and innovative chefs from Southern California, Mexico, and beyond—held its first annual event in June 2019. Fast forward to 2020, and we’re in another universe altogether. While mass gatherings aren’t possible, Taqueando’s organizers are keeping the spirit of the event alive with Taqueando Takeover, a five week rotating pop-up of taqueros and taqueras curated by Bill Esparza (a James Beard Award winner in journalism for his coverage of the Los Angeles taco scene) at the former Church & State restaurant space in Downtown LA. Each week will feature a special guest and special menus available for takeout and for dine-in on a first come, first served basis on the restaurant’s patio from 5:30PM to 11PM. The bar will also be open for dine-in and take out.
To kick off the series, Chef Poncho Martinez of Poncho’s Tlayudas will offer Oaxacan cuisine from the Valles Centrales and Sierra Norte regions for three nights (Thursday, 10/22 through Saturday, 10/24). For more menu details, visit www.taqueandofest.com.
