“THE ORGASMIC BAJA TACO IS The perfect combination of creamy Sweet light spices, A SECRET FISH FILLET, showcasing salsas, a special handmade tortilla AND a flaky crunchy CLIMAX. IT WILL FOREVER CHANGE YOUR PALATE.”


A year ago, the successful launching of “Mi Pasion Catering and Taqueria,” a gourmet cuisine enterprise, surprised our families, a vast circle of friends, downtown law firms and government employees. The makers, our grandniece Lydia Rodriguez Arago and partner Chef Camron Torres.

Since then, the delicious gastronomy of Mi Pasion has delighted thousands of hearty and knowledgeable palates.

By word of mouth only, the news has passionately traveled to many Latino Quarters and Rincones of L.A. including La Opinion, Eastside Sun, Brooklyn&Boyle and the giant LA TIMES. The instant success has been exhilarating to the point “Mi Pasion” was booked all past 52 weeks, and amazingly, they are scheduled 5 months ahead until September 2016, including, a 400 people banquet in which after a “food tasting” session, the newborn enterprise was selected over a major restaurant chain. The same, a week later, Lydia, Camron and staff will serve breakfast to 250 members of the Public Defenders Office.

Mi Pasion will finally stage its official Grand Opening to an already sold out event and the guests will enjoy a Red Carpet entrance, a succulent dinner and the passionate “ORGASMIC BAJA TACO.”

More, the crowd will also be treated to live music by the Latino Fusion ensemble “CALLE PLACER,” TROVADOUR “CHUY PEREZ,” PLUS UP AND COMING COMEDIAN “MONIQUE FLORES.”
