Yesterday, Loteria chef Jimmy Shaw explained to Grub Street how he created his tacos carnitas. Hopefully, chefs Eric Greenspan and Akasha Richmond were reading, as this evening the two toques will square off at Loteria Hollywood in a “taco battle,” as part of dineLA’s “quickfire challenge” series. Catch the chefs crafting their tacos here at 5:00 P.M., choosing among nopal, chile poblano, or epazote to use in their dishes, while Loteria previews its restaurant week menus. Any early predictions on a winner? [DineLA]
