St. Patrick’s Day is over, but we’re still seeing lots of green! When you see “verde” on our menu, you can bet it will be fresh, flavorful and delicious. Take our green food challenge and try something green from our menu on your next visit:
Chile Verde: pork carnitas sautéed in a tomatillo sauce with onions and green peppers, served with Mexican rice, frijoles de la olla and hot tortillas
Enchiladas Suizas: two enchiladas with seasoned shredded chicken and roasted green chiles, topped with salsa verde, cheese and sour cream, served with Mexican rice and refried beans
Enchiladas de Espinacas: sautéed spinach, mushrooms, onion and peppers with jalapeño cheese sauce folded into two corn tortillas and topped with salsa verde and sour cream, served with fiesta rice and a concha of black beans
And of course, we can’t forget our tasty (and cute!) Concha de Guacamole. You’ll love this crispy flour tortilla with fresh guacamole, sprinkled with jack and cheddar cheese and served with chips.

If you have visited any of our Bazaar del Mundo Restaurants, you know we love lively mariachi music, a style rich in Mexican history and culture!
First appearing in the nineteenth century in the Mexican state of Jalisco, mariachi groups are known for performing at religious celebrations, plazas, big family events and restaurants – but their appearance has changed over the years. Early mariachi groups consisted only of string instruments, including guitars and harps, but as jazz music became more popular, the trumpet was introduced – now a beloved staple of the band.
Spreading their culture to the U.S., the first appearance of mariachi groups flourished in California. Now the groups are known all over for spicing up celebrations!
Guests love mariachis’ traditional clothing. Commonly called a charro suit, this outfit usually includes waste-length jackets, pants or skirts, and embroidery with leather designs or silver buttons.
If you haven’t had a chance to experience mariachi music, it’s time you visited one of our restaurants for an unforgettable fiesta! We invite you to celebrate your special occasion with us or join us for dinner and drinks, where you’ll be transported south of the border by our strolling mariachis.
