Komida Opens Next Week + How to Win Tacos for a Year
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:
Patrons attending the Thursday, October 6 opening night of Komida will be entered to win a “Tacos For a Year” grand prize. Each patron will be entered only ONE time upon purchasing at least one taco before 8:30pm that evening. The winner will then be announced at 8:45pm - though the winner does not need to be present to win. The “Tacos For a Year” grand prize will bestow upon the lucky winner 3 free tacos at Komida each week for a year!
