It’ll be five years next week since chef Esdras Ochoa (the mastermind behind Salazar) opened Mexicali Taco & Co. and started dishing out some of L.A.’s greatest tacos in Chinatown. To celebrate the milestone, the restaurant is handing out free tacos from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on February 15. According to their announcement on Facebook, all you have to do is tell the cashier “Happy fifth anniversary!” and boom, two free tacos are yours.
