Ophelia has been working with our family for 16 years, and I just recently heard that her husband loves to cater events with his amazing street tacos. So I decided to drag some of my good foodie friends along for the ride. With not too much arm twisting, they showed up eagerly to try the fare.
Not sure how much food he was going to bring, I threw out a couple simple appetizers, including Mom's famous gazpacho, and my friend Nana brought a delicious salad with roasted butternut squash, cranberries, and toasted almonds.
Carlos and Ophelia showed up with an amazing spread. They featured carne asada, carnitas, and el pastor tacos. They served the most delicious refried beans and rice with all the accoutrements. They bring everything in, cook to your liking, pack up the leftovers, store them in YOUR fridge, and leave without a grain of rice left on the floor. Really a great team and a great way to casually entertain.
Sometimes you don't need to spend a bunch of money on flower decorations for your party. I went around my garden and picked oranges, tangerines, and fig branches to add some decorative touches to the party.
We ended the night with an array of alcoholic popsicles that wowed the crowd and got them a little looser. The remaining partiers finished with a hilarious game of Card Against Humanity, a party game for horrible people. Games that challenge your brain are always fun at the end of the night, especially when things aren't so PC.
Carlos's company is called Tacos Evas, and you can call to book him at (949) 233-7209
