Tanabe cooks the food he knows best, Mexican. The son of a Mexican mother, he loves the challenge of creating dishes without the traditional ingredients . . . like carnitas made from brisket braised in duck fat and soy-based sour cream.
And don’t forget to top off any order with one of Tanabe’s 14 original salsas. More are on the way.
“I love salsas . . . I have chipotle, green salsas, sesame salsas, roast tomatoes,” he added.MORE NEWS: One Shot In Beverly Hills Robbery Outside Restaurant
