Danny Trejo Opens Taco Restaurant, but How Authentic is It?
Danny Trejo, aka Machete, AND tacos? Yes! Trejo has made this Hollywood-meets-culinary dream come true with Trejo’s Tacos, his new Los Angeles restaurant.
But this is no ordinary taco joint, Trejo’s Tacos — owned by Trejo and his colleagues Ash Shah and Jeff Georgino — is a contemporary restaurant that’s aiming to attract those who love tacos with a twist, such as tofu tacos with chiles serranos or fried avocado tacos with refried beans. Yum!
Now, before you go gasping all over this taco menu, you have to remember that this restaurant is in L.A. Yes, tofu-quinoa-kale-loving L.A. “Here, we wanted to include everybody, so we have a great vegan menu and gluten-free menu,” said Trejo. That should have all the hipsters, Hollywood starlets and models flocking to the place.
What’s awesome about his restaurant too, is that at the end of the night, everything left over is donated to the homeless.
