New Dessert Taco Alert! Taco de Churro by Evil Cooks
Evil duo, La Bruja and El Pobre Diablo, are at it again raising temptations with an alluring new dessert taco they are adding to their menu this weekend. It’s a taco de churro, with a chocolate de abuelita spread, preserved lemons, and garnished with bacon bits and a flower. The tortilla is the same 50/50 flour-corn crepe-like mix they use for their famous flan taco, which will also be available alongside their black trompo. Find them Fridays and Saturdays from 5:00 – 8:30 PM.

Metztli Taqueria Returns Five Nights a Week
Metztli Taqueria and their unique style of fine Alta-California tacos made with fresh local and seasonal produce make its way back to their old residency at Melody Wine Bar five nights a week. Their summer menu includes a mushroom chile verde with black garlic salsa, queso Oaxaca, and egg yolk bottarga. They’ll also have their classic barbacoa taco with hibiscus-dyed onion topped with caramelized onion salsa and Japanese guacamole on a handmade blue corn tortilla. If you make the mistake of passing up their octopus tostada with their rich miso peanut salsa macha, or their crab tostada with yuzu mayo, chile morita and grasshopper salsa, you can at least enjoy their seasonal addition of calabacitas, their take on every abuelita’s classic hearty and wholesome dish.
Burgers For Aileen
A’s BBQ is looking to smash their younger cousins medical bills with proceeds from this Saturday’s pop-up from 1:00-8:00 PM. You can DM to put your order in for an al pastor smash burger or a regular beef smash burger with guajillo mustard. They’ll also have their Puerquito sandwich made of smoked carnitas and queso Oaxaqueno, or go for the big boy known as el Cowboy, two beef patties with swiss cheese, crispy onions, smoked carnitas, and house-made jalapeño bbq sauce.
Drink Beer, Support BLM
Common Space Brewery in Hawthorne has brewed a tropical IPA with hints of tangerine and grapefruit called “Take Action IPA.” The cans are covered in vibrant artwork by local artist Devon Blow and all proceeds will be donated to Black Lives Matter L.A. They are available for pick up at the brewery, local delivery, and at select retailers starting July 24th. If you’re just coming back from a protest against DA Jackie Lacey or supporting the cause from home, either way this beer will be sure to freshen you up during the summer.
