Frida Mexican Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Frida Mexican Cuisine’s Glendale outpost of the Beverly Hills original is one of the high points of the dining scene at The Americana at Brand. An expansive patio provides people-watching while enjoying good chips with a trio of salsas, but the interior is sleek, with soaring wood-clad walls, contemporary lighting and a large, dramatically illuminated bar. This is no neighborhood cantina, and the menu is equally distinctive, with dishes such as ceviche de camarón, carpaccio mixto with tuna and shrimp, and sautéed prawns in an orange-tequila sauce. Oaxacan mole poblano satisfies, as do the cochinita platter of slow-cooked pork and the chipotle barbecue ribs. More than a dozen wines are offered by the glass, but the focus is on more than 30 available tequilas and mezcals that go into a wide array of margaritas and specialty cocktails. For dessert, you’ll find churros, flan and tres leches cake. Other locations.
