ABOUT US 

CULTURE AND COMMUNITY ARE CORE TO OUR RESTAURANT, WHICH IS WHY, FOR OUR FIRST OUTSPOST OUTSIDE OF LOS ANGELES, WE FELT THE VIBRANT COSMOPOLITAN HUB THAT IS NOTTING HILL'S PORTOBELLO ROAD WAS THE PERFECT LOCATION. 
WHEN WE FIRST STARTED THINKING ABOUT TREJO'S TACOS, WE DIDN'T WANT TO COMPETE WITH THE VIBRANT TRADITIONAL MEXICAN FOOD SCENE IN LOS ANGELES, WE WANTED TO FIND OUR OWN STYLE, OUR OWN VOICE, WHILST STILL PAYING RESPECT TO THE LA MEXICAN FOOD CULTURE. 
WITH OUR RECIPES, WE TAKE AUTHENTIC TRADITIONAL INGREDIENTS AND MASH THEM UP, BRINGING IN INFLUENCES FROM OTHER CUISINES, AND EXPERIMENTING WITH NEW FLAVOURS.

WE SEE OUR FOOD AS REPRESENTATIVE OF LOS ANGELES; BUILT OFF HISTORIC ROOTS, BUT A MELTING POT OF CULTURES ALL INFLUENCING EACH OTHER IN SOME WAY.
 
FOR DANNY, FOOD HAS ALWAYS PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE AND ACCOUNTED FOR MANY OF HIS MOST POSITIVE MEMORIES.
FROM COOKING WITH HIS MOM, TO FAMILY DINNERS WITH HIS KIDS, ON-SET MEALS WITH NEW AND OLD FRIENDS, AND OF COURSE, THE IMMEDIATE VISIT TO HIS LOCAL TACO SHOP WHENEVER HE GOT RELEASED FROM A PRISON STAY (DANNY DOESN'T THINK PRISON FOOD IS THAT GOOD).
IN 2015 (WHILE FILMING THE MOVIE BAD ASS), THE PRODUCER ASKED DANNY IF HE WOULD PARTNER WITH HIM IN THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS.
THE ANSWER WAS A BIG "HELL YES" AND NOW WE TRULY FEEL LIKE BAD-ASS RESTAURATEURS.
