The tacos served up at the seasonal weekly hilltop farmers' market at Hollywood's Yamashiro have attracted a fanatical following, and now its time for those tasty bites--and the chef behind them--to step out on their own. Komida, the off-shoot storefront project of Yamashiro Executive Chef Brock Kleweno, is opening as-planned October 6th.

You'll be able to score those yummy Miso Sake Black Cod, Spiced Hoisin Duck Confit, and Braised Short Rib tacos Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m.,and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. only. Additional days and hours will be added in November. Plus, you can scoop up some packaged goodies, like Kleweno's crave-worthy Wasabi Guacamole, to take home. While you're dining, there will be beer, wine, and house-made sangria for sale, too.

Heads up: Komida will be cash-only for the time being (an ATM is onsite if you forget your paper bucks).

Oh, and we said free tacos for a year, right? Here are the official details on how to get in on that:
