Two food powerhouses are joining forces for a collab that'll bring back one of our favorite dishes in L.A.
Filipino BBQ joint the Park's Finest has remained temporarily closed throughout the pandemic, but starting this week you can find their signature Mama Leah's Coconut Beef curry for the first time in more than one year—and you can find it in a taco. From June 25 to July 9, you can snag the collaborative Mamacita Leah's Coco Guisado at actor-restaurateur Danny Trejo's taquerias in Hollywood, La Brea and the Original Farmers Market, filling fresh corn tortillas with the Park's Finest's 16-hour–smoked top round in coconut cream, vinegar, chilies and fish sauce.
What's more, a portion of proceeds will benefit El Centro del Pueblo, a nonprofit that aids youth and families in Northeast, South and Central L.A., and helps to mitigate gang violence.
To kick off the collab, both restaurants are teaming up for a one-night-only feast at Trejo's Hollywood cantina, where $60 per person gets you an array of Filipino BBQ smoked meats and curries, plus taco fixins to build your own mashup tacos: Mama Leah's Coconut Beef, smoky grilled chicken, San Pablo-style pork and the famed cornbread bibinka are all on the menu, as are fresh tortillas, farmers market beans, and Spanish rice.
