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.
Open daily 11am-11pm
