About the Venue: Mestiza
With a lush tropical garden patio + beautiful interior, Mestiza Taqueria is a unique and memorable venue. Mestiza means a woman of mixed culture or heritage in Filipino. The concept of Mestiza Taqueria was created and influenced by the Filipino roots of owner Deanna Sison Foster (Little Skillet, Farmerbrown, Victory Hall & Parlor).
