Los Feliz newcomer Tacos Tu Madre opens to the world tomorrow, bringing their colorful brand of Mexican food to the heart of the neighborhood on Vermont. What's more: they'll be giving away tacos to anyone who shows up and follows them on social media.
It’s been a breezy turnaround for the long-dormant El Greco Cafe space next to the movie theater, as word only landed last week that the shop was even coming to the area. Wrapped with large windows that show off the small interior dining area and the attached kitchen, the corner address is full of light and gleaming white tile. Outside, there are more than a dozen casual patio tables and the sort of DayGlo mural work that makes their Westwood original such a hit with the Instagram crowd.
Seating is tight inside, with a couple dozen stool spots wrapping the smallish space, and underneath the wall of potted plants. Mostly you'll want to sit outside, where the Tacos Tu Madre team got permission from the city to drop a bunch of patio tables along the front and side of the building.
Hours for the new Tacos Tu Madre in Los Feliz will mirror those of the Westwood original, which means 9 a.m. to midnight during the week, and until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. That's good news for folks looking to down some food after the bars let out along Vermont, or following a late night screening at the theater next door.
Want to nab your own free taco? Just show up tomorrow for the opening, follow them on social media, and it's yours.
