Raul Arreola Unmasked!



Wondering what happened to Frontera vet Raul Arreola since Rustico Grill closed and he left Mixteco Grill? According to the video, he's resurfaced as the mysterious lucha-libre-masked chef of Tamalli Space Charros. For months TSC mouthpiece and performance artist Aztlan Cardinal has foretold the launch of a "mobile tamalli space ship" influenced by Mexican wrestling, sci-fi films, and the avant-garde movement known as Stridentism. This weekend the ship lands, not as a food truck, but as a stand at the Wrigleyville Summerfest, helmed by Arreola, Cardinal, and other former employees of the House of Rick, turning out a short and promising menu of guacamole, tilapia fish tacos, paletas, and three varieties of tamale:

—chicken with peanut mole
—pork with black mole
—rajas with tomato-habanero sauce

That's at
3300 N. Seminary at School, Saturday from noon-10 PM and Sunday from 10 AM-9 PM
