This past weekend was eventful and full of
restaurant exploration as I dined at three different Los Angeles spots. On
Sunday, I met up with a girlfriend at Madre! and was impressed by their food
If you love
Mexican food, I highly suggest you visit Madre! at any of their three locations:
Torrance, Culver City, and West Hollywood. The Oaxacan inspired restaurant is
vibrant and embraces the Latino culture to the max with modern twists. The
staff is attentive, the food is delicious, and the conversation was amazing.
|ELOTE IS BOMB!
For my main entre, I ordered carne asada soft tacos with a side of rice. Unfortunately, rice and beans are not served with their entrees like at other Mexican restaurants, but their serving sides will fill you up. The asada tacos, topped with beans, were tender to the bite and unbelievably delectable.
Note: I did not take a picture of the tacos because
I immersed myself in conversation and began eating them as soon as they hit the
of Madre! is vivacious and welcoming. The music is at the right volume where you
are not shouting over it to converse with your table. The staff was attentive
and quick to make sure we had everything we wanted. Since I was driving, I did
not try any of their cocktails, BUT I do plan to go back so I will have to update
The menu price
point, I would say, is mid-level. It is not too pricey, but some items (for
myself) are priced a little higher than I would regularly like to pay. However,
the experience and the quality of their food is worth the cost. I plan to go
back again and try other items and a cocktail.
|How cute is their bar?
If you are looking for a chic spot, visit Madre! They are well known for their mezcal and mole, which I plan to taste the next time I visit. Happy Hour is every Monday through Friday, between 3 – 6 p.m.
