A Look Into Frida Westwood’s New $20 AYCE Sunday Brunch
Taco de arrachera at Frida Westwood

We’re often a little skeptical, but typically quite willing when it comes to all-you-can-eat buffets. Frida Westwood, the new name for chef-owner Vicente del Rio’s nearly one-and-a-half year-old Caza Azul, just launched a new AYCE mariachi brunch buffet on Sundays from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. Practically giving away food at a $20 price point, it’s hard to imagine that even buffet-phobes won’t be won over by an impressive Mexican spread that includes tamales, guisado de nopales (cactus paddle stew), cochinita pibil, a grill-top taco bar with pork, skirt steak, rajas, and pollo adobado, and a mountain of fresh seafood ceviches and aguachile. Sure, there may still be a chocolate fountain and an omelet bar (and warning: there’s a payaso on premises for the little guys) , but five-dollar margaritas and live mariachi more than make up for those more ordinary brunch inclusions. Come check out some of the dishes being served at Frida’s Sunday brunch, one of the best Mexican buffets we’re yet to find in L.A., in our slideshow look.

Sides include black beans, plantains, and green rice.
Of all-you-can-eat enchiladas, freshly steamed tamales with chile verde, cochinita pibil, guisado de nopales, fish in salsa diabla, rajas, and calabacitas.
Are sold for five bucks,  along with sangrita and a caballito of Mezcal Los Javis.
A skirt steak taco from the top-grill taco bar.
With a heavy shot of lime and Maggi sauce.
Not too spicy and absolutely riddled with avocado.
Music plays throughout brunch.
Beats the chocolate fountain anyday.
