Petty Cash Taqueria
I'm not, but I'm impressed regardless:
"Esparza puts it this way: "We're of a similar age, so we remember the old Tijuana when all the college students and cholos used to go and get drunk on the Avenida Revolucion. It was [Manzke's] idea to bring that '80s Tijuana club music. We have 2 Live Crew on our sound system. You're not going that see that with Daniel Boulud."
Esparza has helped Manzke locate everything from ingredients to talent, including wild Sonoran chiltepin chiles used in the aguachile en molcajete and one of the best tortilla-makers in L.A., a woman in Boyle Heights."
