There are many lists out there that help us decide many different things in our life. We check the internet for the best cocktails, best recipes, best activities and best tacos. Here at Chelas Mexican Grill, our primary goal is to provide the best Mexican food in Orange County. While that may seem like a difficult feat, especially in Orange County, it’s become official. Chelas Mexican Grill has been added to the list of best tacos in Orange County by Orange Coast Magazine.
Not only were we mentioned in the list of 29 best places for tacos, but we were also in the top three!
When you’re passionate about what you do, it doesn’t feel like work. We’re very passionate about food and more importantly, the food that represents our culture. Mexican food is more than just a bunch of ingredients thrown together to make a taco or burrito. Mexican food acts as a sort of invitation to our family. Each component is shown respect and the combinations that make up any single menu item are carefully selected. The main ingredient is found at the bottom of a taco; everything else is there to compliment that part. We are honored to be among the others on the list of best tacos in Orange County.
What Makes The Best
Everything at Chelas is made from fresh ingredients that are made fresh to order. If asked what the main ingredient is the answer would be freshness. We all know that there’s nothing like eating a fresh piece of fruit, plucked moments ago from a tree. That same idea should be applied to everything, fresh cilantro, tomatoes, tortillas, and everything else. We also make our salsas so that we can ensure the same care is put into those as well.
History in Food
The recipes at Chelas Mexican Grill are born with a rich family history. The entire Vasquez family knew Rosalia’s recipes would be famous one day and we feel that this list has made it official. Over time, the family grew along with the recipe book. That family will never stop growing. We invite you and everyone else to come in and join the family. Over a plate of food cooked with passion, love, history, and only the freshest ingredients, you too can be part of the Vasquez family.
