    A Mexican chowhound from San Jose, CA tried it and liked it. They liked the food, liked the service, and liked the ambiance.

MexiKosher is an adventure in Mexican Kosher food in LA

Katsuji Tanabe grew up in Mexico with a mix of cultures – his father from Japan and his mother from Mexico. You would never know to look at him that he is “hapa” (half). His 15 years of culinary experience (graduate of Le Cordon Bleu) and cultural background are a winning combination when it comes to food. For the last 8 years, he has been working restaurants where he has been in charge of the kosher menu. Being limited to certain types of food, you learn to be creative while still thinking “inside” the box of Kosher. With this arsenal under his belt, he started to ponder how he could make Kosher Mexican food. It was quite a challenge but in July 2011, MexiKosher was born, introducing a totally new food experience to both the Kosher and non-Kosher eating communities. In Southern California, we take it for granted since Mexican food is so prevalent in our lives. Eating a taco or burrito is second nature to us. When MexiKosher opened, Katsuji had to show people how to eat these foods as the concept was totally foreign to them. For example, most parts of beef that are used in our everyday tacos and burritos are not considered to be a Kosher part of the cows – pretty much any parts from the stomach down are not allowed. All pork is off limits as well as dairy products. There are many other items and ritual practices that need to be followed to be considered Kosher. See Wikipedia for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosher_foods

Kobe Ground Beef Taco

Kobe Ground Beef Taco tastes like a more robust ground taco meat than you’ll ever get at a restaurant. The beef flavor is accentuated by the chili and herbs. It is so juicy too! Thumbs up, way up!

Birria Taco

Birria Taco is lamb and beef mixed with dried chilis and braised for 16 hours. It was like the best lamb and beef stew inside a taco. It was braised so long that it just melts in your mouth. The chilis accent the meat with a slight sweetness without burning your mouth. You’ll definitely have an OMG moment or two! Thumbs up, way up!

Chicken Breast Taco

Chicken Breast Taco is chicken marinated in a secret Mayan mix of spices with a citrus aroma and charbroiled. The chicken breast is kept whole and chopped to order. It was full of flavor yet tender and juicy. Thumbs up!

“Carnitas” Tacos

“Carnitas” Tacos is beef and duck confit slow cooked for 18 hours. Chef Katsuji really shows his talent in this meat. Since pork is off limits, he uses the beef for texture and the duck confit as a “pork flavor/fat substitute”. It tasted exactly like carnitas. I’m totally serious! It’s an amazing feat and I bow down to Chef Kat’s skills for showing the Kosher community what pork tastes like. Thumbs up, way up!

Goat

On this visit, the daily special was Goat – Black chile braised goat Texcoco-style (small city in Mexico famous for goat barbacoa). I love lamb and goat so this was just amazing to me! The meat was so tender, juicy, and flavorful. The braising process pretty much eliminates the gamey smell and flavor of goat, which I don’t mind. I could eat this every day. If it’s on special, get it! You’ll definitely have an OMG moment or two! Thumbs up, way up!
