Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food to eat.When I first moved to LA I scoured every taco truck and Mexican food joint to find the best one! Funny enough I ended up moving my office down the street from one of my favorite ones…I swear it wasn’t intentional!  Although I don’t indulge in carne asada burritos as much as I used to,  I’m always looking for a good excuse to do so.

Anyways I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate Cinco De Mayo with a fun shoot in front of one of my fave taco joints in LA. Unfortunately when we shot this over the weekend the restaurant was closed, hence the reason why I resorted to drinking a red beet juice from Robeks instead of my beloved Horchata , but believe that I will be going back today to pick up some Carne Asada tacos & fries! HAPPY MONDAY & of course HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!

I would move to the West Coast just for the food! After living in Arizona as a kid, I’ve never had better Mexican food since!

Happy Cinco do Mayo!
