Featured in LA's The Place, Ocho Taqueria opened recently in the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance. The cooks grill piquant Mexican specialties and south-of-the-border favorites such as tacos, tamales, and burritos. At tables with vibrant, colorful bench seating, diners can enjoy house specialties such as carne asada marinated in adobo sauce or sautéed shrimp served over mexican rice. Bartenders squeeze fresh juices by hand into cocktails and margaritas made with a large selection of tequilas, some made by artisanal distilleries and others made by overachieving agave plants that distill themselves. And to reflect the authenticity of the food, the classic decor includes lively Mexican photographs and figurines lining burnt-red walls.
