My family and I were invited to a dining experience at Chef Thomas Ortega’s new restaurant in Cerritos – Amor Y Tacos. Check out what we ordered, and you’ll want to enter for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate below!
For starters, the guacamole was so good.
We enjoyed cocktails like Amor Margarita (with house infused pineapple) and El Corazon (with blood orange, strawberry marmalade, and cranberry).
My husband gobbled up his Tour de Taco which includes pollo, carne asada, short rib, carnitas, and queso. He said he liked them all and didn’t want to share.
This Oaxacan Mole (house-made grandma’s recipe with 21 ingredients) is highly recommended and we agree. The chicken was so tender and flavorful.
