Food Frida Kahlo would be proud of, in a lovely Mexican home-like atmosphere dedicated to her by owner Gerardo García. Busy at lunchtime with the suit and tie crowd.

Frida Kahlo debe estar orgullosa de esta una casa al estilo mejicano con una atmósfera acogedora dedicada a ella por el dueño Gerardo García. Muy frecuentada al mediodía por profesionales en vestimenta de gabán y corbata.

Reviewed 1998: “the house salsa is positively wonderful and totally addicting…the very best mole. A wide variety of menu specialities unique to Frida’s.”

Reseñado en 1998: “La salsa de la casa es positivamente maravillosa…el mejor mole con una variedad de especialidades que solo Frida’s ofrece.”

    • Beets: A Variety Pack of Easy and Delicious Techniques July 21, 2014
      Beets are popping up in CSA boxes, farmer’s markets and gardens (except mine, because I haven’t planted any this year since I wasn’t going to be consistently available to thin and tend them).  I never liked them as a kid, because when I was a kid they only came out of a can and were […]
    • Guingambó Guisado (Stewed Okra) Even if you think it’s gooey, you’ll like the food history July 18, 2014
      In Puerto Rico we call it guingambó (geen-gahm-BOH) or variations on that word, which seems to derive from the original African term for it. You may know it as okra (which may be another African derivative) or ladyfingers for the elegant shape of its conical pods. Usually bright green, there are gorgeous red varieties too […]
