A visit to Chichen Itza and YXTA restaurants in Los Angeles

Each year I have the opportunity to lead the PR campaign for AltaMed’s East LA Meets Napa, a unique event that celebrates┬áthe richness and success of Latino-owned restaurants and vineyards in California and beyond. This year’s preview event took us to┬áChich├ęn Itz├í, a Yucatecan restaurant in the Mercado La Paloma to try turkey┬ápanuchos served with agua de chaya;┬ácochinita pibil, pork cooked in an underground oven and the restaurant’s famed ceviche. We then ventured to YXTA to sample its┬ágringas, similar to tacos made with flour tortillas filled with┬ácarne al pastor, Oaxacan cheese, chile salsa and avocado salsa served with a cabernet┬áby Trujillo Wines.
