NORTH PARK— Mexi-modern eatery Tacos Perla joined the ranks of San Diego’s Taco Tuesday scene on Nov. 4 with the expansion of its menu and some new specials. Their new Taco Tuesday menu will run every Tuesday from open to close (11:30am - 10:00pm) and include $2 adobada tacos, $2 mahi-mahi tacos, $3 tecates and $4 mango habanero micheladas. The mahi-mahi tacos are a new menu item altogether and will be a spin-off of the traditional Ensenada-style of preparation. Due to better pricing from local vendors, they have also been able to reduce prices across the board; traditional taco prices from $3.95 to $3.50 each, and non-traditional taco from $4.95 to $4.75 each.
OLD TOWN— According to a source within the business, a dissolution has occurred between El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria in Old Town and its former Del Mar location, El Agave Restaurant. The partnership reportedly dissolved by mutual consent. The Del Mar location will be changing its name soon and effective Nov. 17, 2014, is no longer associated with the Old Town location. The original location in Old Town will continue to provide its services to loyal patrons
