Community matters and supporting local restaurants is a perfect place to contribute. We have found a fantastic new restaurant tucked away in Orange County’s South Coast Collection (SOCO). Taco Maria promises to tantalize your taste buds and stimulate your senses. Like art, their presentation will orchestrate an atmosphere for a distinguished meal with your holiday guests soon to arrive.
Their menu changes seasonly, offering a Prix Fixe Wednesday through Saturday evenings with four courses. A wine pairing for each course is also available. Tuesday evenings and lunches offer À la carte with a selection of enchanting tacos served on handmade tortillas. Sunday brunch is flawless with all the cozy comforts. Smith Group Films paints a picture of what you can expect (all footage filmed on an iPhone).
“In our family, María is the proper first name of every mother, sister, tía, and abuelita going back generations. Ours are the flavors of their lost kitchens: traditions into Southern California’s multicultural soils, alongside local produce and regional meats and seafood, by a Michelin-starred chef raised here in Orange County.
We call it ‘Chicano Cuisine,’ a mezcla of Mexican and American cultures, a conversation between our generation and the generations of humble cooks who nurtured the traditions of our home table.
Chef Carlos Salgado spent a decade in San Francisco and Oakland, learning in many of the Bay Area’s best kitchens. From Vernon Morales’ cutting-edge Winterland, to Daniel Patterson’s ambitious Coi, and James Syhabout’s intimate Commis, Carlos worked his way through some of the most thoughtful and innovative restaurants in Northern California before settling back home in Orange County.”
