@Komida_LA Where Flavors and Cultures Mix

October 9, 2011

where flavors and cultures mix. Kinda like L.A.
Only, you know, in a taco.”

The next time you are in Hollywood on Thursday evening or lunch on Saturday, stop by Komida on 1738 N. Orange Dr. (just off of Hollywood Blvd., behind Grauman’s Chinese) and be ready for the ultimate Los Angeles food. Forget everything you know about tacos. They are the perfect food on many counts. Yet newly opened Komida offers THE ultimate taco experience with the Asian-inspired tacos that a more mainstream Southwest meal just lacks. Trust me, I conducted a personal taco tasting day as an informal experiment. Komida reminded me how satisfying life in L.A. can be when every detail is aligned by a skilled designer, such as Chef Brock. @ChefBrock

Chef Brock Kleweno who contributes to Yamashiro’s success on staff as a chef (@Yamashiro_LA), is gracious and personable as the visionary behind Komida. At the recent opening, he mentioned that Alice Waters was his inspiration, the founder of Chez Panisse who pioneered a new appreciation for locally-grown, seasonal food known as California cuisine – “Good food depends almost entirely on good ingredients.” At Komida, tacos are the perfect meal – good food from good ingredients, fusing the tastes, textures and colors of several cultures. As the eco-friendly poster child of cuisine, tacos require no cutlery, no frying, no elaborate preparation, serve 1 without promoting overeating, and leave very little carbon footprint to serve.

At Komida, be ready to meet corn tortilla tacos filled with miso sake black cod, chicken satay, spiced hoisin duck confit, soy and red wine braised short rib, or tangy veggies accompanied by salsas and tastes like a wasabi guacamole, ginger pico de gallo, and tequila salsa verde. No wheat, no cheese, no wrong choice. Bring a friend and try them all. Komida is open for dinner on Thursdays 5:00 to 9:00 P.M. and for lunch on Saturdays 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. Cash only through October, so don’t let your sudden embrace of a cashless society allow you to miss out. Go! What are you waiting for?

And I didn’t win the free tacos for a year at the opening 😦 but if I don’t go back soon for more tacos, I’m a bigger loser for missing out on the limited availability!
