Sundried Tomato American Bistros and Catering has announced a new Mexican-American fast-casual restaurant near its flagship restaurant. Bueno Bueno Mexican Kitchen is designed to offer a culinary destination featuring contemporary Mexican cuisine in an attractive and fun environment under the theme "PANZA LLENA, CORAZON CONTENTO" (Full Belly, Happy Heart). Simple, fresh, organic Mexican food with a twist cooked in a scratch kitchen with good portions and high-quality, friendly service will add a unique experience to the areas dining scene. Liquid refreshments will include soft drinks, creative horchatas and agua frescas, tequila and mezcal-based craft cocktails, 12 Mexican and craft beers on draft, and wines from the Guadalupe Valley of Mexico.
A light and bright atmosphere will welcome patrons with American-Spanish pop/rock music, black steel doors and windows, and other appointments for an ambience that's a cut above the typical fast-casual environment. The venue was designed by San Clemente resident Paula Oblen, CEO of Hotelements, Inc. Bar and table seating will be available, as well as to-go service. Other features will include a tequila sipping bar and a visible fresh tortilla making station.
The new restaurant is the realization of a longstanding vision of Quest and Reymundo Pinedo. Pinedo, who is creating the menu, is a partner, executive chef and 25-year veteran of Sundried. Sundried Operations Partner Saul Cruz is assisting with development of the project.
Bueno Bueno Mexican Kitchen is expected to open on Mar. 5, 2018, for daily lunch and dinner and breakfast specials on weekends at 26762 Verdugo Street in San Juan Capistrano. The location is a perfect, high-traffic spot just steps from the San Juan Capistrano train depot.
