Toca Madera Est. 2015

8450 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048, United States

There is so much to taco ‘bout when it comes down to this new Mexican restaurant in the heart of West Hollywood! 
Who can say no to Mexican food, especially when this particular place emphasizes the importance of organic and locally farmed food, and even offers up a vegan menu with gluten free options! This spot is an ideal destination and delivers a memorable experience, so instead of giving in one day a week, we say live everyday like it's Taco Tuesday!

Inside Scoop

The best part of Toca Madera...there's happy hour. It's happening from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday, and all the food, cocktails, house wine and sangria on the happy hour menu are $8. If you want draft beers, those are $4.

Because this is an organic Mexican restaurant with a regular menu, full vegan menu and gluten-free options, think cochinita pibil tacos with spiced citrus and banana leaf-braised heritage farm pork with guacamole, jalapeno cabbage, pickled onions, grilled pineapple and mango salsa; and chicken cilantro tacos with Jidori chicken, caramelized onions, serrano peppers, cilantro, avocado tomatillo salsa, queso fresco and pickled onions for the meat eaters in your party.

And for the vegans, sweet corn tamales made with roasted pasilla chiles, fire-roasted tomato salsa and avocado tomatillo sauce; and soyrizo asada tacos topped with guacamole, cilantro, red onions, sweet chipotle sauce and vegan mozzarella. If you're in your I'm-not-eating-carbs-right-now mode, the chipotle tofu lettuce wraps come without the tortillas, topped with garlic mojo, radish and vegan mozzarella. Each of the tacos and wraps come two to an order.

Venue Features
Design:

This is Toca Madera, a small plates Mexican concept by way of EDL Management Group bringing with it a loungey vibe and and outstanding cuisine and service.

Dark and wood-lined, the 120 seat restaurant is practically overtaken by a massive bar made of crystal and quartz. Surrounding that, a long banquette fits a handful of two tops while much of the rest of the space works as a softened lounge, with plush seats and low tables. The mix of stone, tile and wood spills out into the indoor patio space, which is lined to the high ceiling with hanging plants in metal boxes. There’s even a built in photobooth for those particularly wild nights.

On the menu, executive chef Raymond Alvarez is cooking up "barrio-style fine dining," which translates into everything from table-side guacamole to sashimi aguachile to Ensenada-style fish tacos. Back at the bar, tequilas and mezcals take center stage, along with a rotating selection of beer and wine.

Standout Venue Features:

To sip — or gulp, depending on how your week went down — the Toca Margarita is made with tequila blanco, Combier, agave, lime and orange; the La Bonita is made with tequila blanco, strawberry, basil, lime, black pepper and alderwood salt rim; and the Amante Picante is a spicy mix of tequila blanco, Patron citronage, serrano pepper, cilantro, lime, agave and tajín.

The plush purple booths provide comfy nooks to relax in. And after looking around and taking in the engraved skulls, living walls and some of the slightly medieval light fixtures, you may think of both Prince and "Game of Thrones." Three margaritas into your evening, you'll forget all about that "Game of Thrones" finale and head into the photo booth.
