Spanglish Kitchen offers Mexican food that families and foodies will love

Alberto Prado and Jason Veizaga are best friends and roommates who opened Spanglish Kitchen this past April on the corner of North Atlantic Boulevard and West Alhambra Road. Customers looking for good quality but affordable Mexican food in the San Gabriel Valley can enjoy tacos, tortas, huaraches, homemade guacamole and other dishes, plus a variety of aguas frescas, either on the patio or by ordering for pickup.

 

The two opened the restaurant in Alhambra in large part because of how difficult it was to find Mexican food in town. Prado, who has worked in the restaurant industry for 27 years, wanted to bring restaurant quality Mexican food to Alhambra, when it comes to not only how the food tastes, but how it looks as well.

 

“So there’s an art to that, and you have to be consistent, and everybody’s gotta be on the same page, to wow people that good food can come out of a window,” he explains. “And you hear the sizzling of the steak that now is being cooked because here comes a rush of some steak burritos or tortas, and the chopping and the blending. We want to be a neighborhood kitchen."

 

Spanglish Kitchen also keeps families in mind, with a variety of choices for adults and children, as well as an affordable price point of $2-$8, depending on the dish. They also want Spanglish Kitchen to distinguish itself with friendly and personalized service. “It’s about getting the full experience,” says Veizaga, especially for those who brave traffic and lines just to eat here.

 

So far, the restaurant is off to a good start, having opened on the day that Kobe Bryant played his last NBA game, and getting its A rating from the health department on Cinco de Mayo. Veizaga and Prado hope that in time they can add foliage and music to their patio so that the neighborhood decides to congregate here.

 

“We want to be the place where you come hang out, open the laptop and have an agua fresca and kill some time, or have your next lunch meeting here, or pick up for the dealerships,” says Prado, envisioning a true community restaurant.
