We tried La Calenda for lunch on Sunday 3/17/19 and we liked it. It was about 1.5hr drive from Fremont so I was pretty hungry when I got there. They have some parking on the side of the restaurant, and street.

They have a bar area, large dining area, and outdoor dining area.

We got:

Cachete de Res en Mole Chichilo $13 - braised beef cheek, mole chichilo, charred jalepeno escabeche, tortillas. The meat is super tender, mole I felt was very mild, homemade blue tortillas - came with only 3. This was an appetizer.

Tacos de Barbacoa $13 - braised short rib, cilantro, watercress, salsa avocado, 2 per order on stone-ground tortillas. I liked the one I tried, hubby got the other one. Pretty tasty.

Puerco en Mole Verde $22 - pork jowl in mole verde, white beans. Meat was very tender, mole very mild, beans fine. Came with more of the blue tortillas (3 pieces).

Frijoles Refritos $5 - refried black beans, queso fresco. Very tasty. We liked them.

Hubby got a glass of Margarita $12. He enjoyed it.

Our total after tax, but before tip $70.04. Pricey food, but we liked it.

Music is loud here and in the bathrooms (2 unisex) the music is super loud!

No reservatons. It’s first come, first served.
