Weekend Taco Briefing: Sonoratown For Dinner + Punta Cabras Opens in Westside + Burritos La Palma Pop Up in Silver Lake Tomorrow

This weekend, go out for tacos.

Sonoratown at night

Last year’s Taco Madness winners are proud to announce their first ever dinner service tonight. Starting at 5:30 P.M. and going until 9 P.M., owners Jennifer Feltham and Teo Diaz will be serving their regular menu in addition to a special burrito option — of course, made with their chewy, thin, delicious handmade flour tortillas — that will only be available at dinner time. So far, the new dinner hours will only be held during the weekends, but the restaurant does have plans of expanding with beer, wine, and an extended dinner menu soon. Follow them on Instagram here to get all the details as they announce them.

More than a year after having to close the doors of the original Tacos Punta Cabras location on Santa Monica Boulevard, the little seafood-specialist taco counter that could is back in a bigger space and full-service (with both cocktails and beer) concept just named Punta Cabras nearby on Broadway. While the co-founder of TPC, Josh Gil, is no longer involved in this newer concept, Daniel Snukal, Gil’s former business partner, is bringing back some of the original dishes from the old spot like their addictive scallop coctel and seasoned handmade corn tortillas. Plus, a fancier “night” menu with items such as beet & uni tartare and albacore al pastor tacos.
