Caldo de Salmón"Fresh salmon soup with salmon chunks, chayote squash, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic and onion."
Paella Mexicana"Jumbo shrimp, mussels & clams with spicy sausages and sautéed duck breast in a saffron-clam juice rice with red and green peppers and onions."
Costillitas de Puerco al Chipotle"Juicy pork ribs in a chipotle barbecue sauce, served with cole slaw, borracho beans & baby carrots."
Crema Flameada de Mango"Tableside burnt cream with mango slices," basically this is a mango creme bruleé and they burn the sugar on top for you with a blowtorch at your table (still from a safe distance though).

ContestI've got three gift certificates to send out to three lucky winners. The gift certificates are buy one lunch/get one lunch free deals good at either Taco Rosa location. To enter e-mail your answers to the three following questions and your name and snail mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm Tuesday, February 5. Three winners will be drawn at random from all correct entries and announced on February 6. A gradated system will be used. For instance: if only one entrant gets all three questions right then that entrant automatically wins one of the three certificates. The remaining two certificates would then go to entries drawn from those who got only two questions correct (extrapolate from there).
- What is the name of Taco Rosa's sister Mexican restaurant chain?
- Name one dessert from their catering menu that is not on their restaurant menu
- What kind of aguas fresca did I (Christian "the blogger") search for for months and eventually encountered only one time?
UPDATE:Well, we actually have four winners of the two-for-one lunch certificate. They are:
- Alyssa T. - Tustin
- Jay P. - Foothill Ranch
- David N. - Santa Ana
- Bing B. - Irvine
