Sabor a Mexico is Closed!

Got quite a shock when I showed up today. There is a sign on the door saying that they closed effective Feb. 1. They will relocate temporarily to someplace on Jefferson Blvd. (sorry I didn't get the actual address) while they look for a new permanent location.

    1. The mystery deepens. I called the old number which referred to a 'new' number that was disconnected. Hopefully someone will transcribe the new 'temporary' address and edit the linked Place. TIA!

      Sabor a Mexico
      2622 W Jefferson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90018

      1. Owner of Bergamot Cafe & Partner in Nook Bistro to open new concept in this space sometime in April.

          That's interesting. I wouldn't really consider that location particularly desirable at all. It's really too bad Sabor a Mexico has left; it was rather unique in our area.

          It's not Estilo D.F. style, but I must give a plug to Tacos Don Jorge a few blocks east on Venice Boulevard. Absolutely awesome al pastor burritos and pretty much everything else. They used to be the very popular taco truck parked at that location and now have their own shop.

          At the NE corner of Venice and Cattaraugus, next door to Autenico furniture.

        2. not good. it figures that this would happen a few weeks before I temporarily take up part-time residence in the neighborhood. Please keep us posted if you find out more.

            Not too far away from the old Sabor A Mexico space is Gloria's Cafe (just a bit west on Venice Blvd. on the N side of the street). Good Mexican and Salvadoran food and friendly, family run sit down restaurant.

              I may try it but the real question is: are their quesadillas the same style as those 'estilo DF' at Sabor a Mexico?

                If you're not with the one you love, love the one you're with.

          2. Oooh! Thanks for the post! I had actually been craving one of those "Estillo DF" quesadillas today.

            Hopefully, they will re open at a location with more seating.

            Keep us posted!
