CLOSED: Pal Cabron (& Natura Oaxacan Juice Bar)
If you've driven past Pal Cabron in Koreatown this week and wondered why the doors are closed and the gate is locked, it's official: the Oaxacan cemita and clayuda shop has closed, along with its next-door neighbor Natura, a Oaxacan ice cream shop and juice bar.
Bricia Lopez writes, "My brother [Fernando Lopez, Jr.] and I have made a decision on shifting our entire focus on Guelaguetza, our family's business that I see as a place with endless possibilities."
Bricia and Fernando, scions of the Lopez family that owns Guelaguetza, shuttered Pal Cabron's original Huntington Park location and reopened it in the Koreatown space in October 2010, in the location where their father opened the first Guelaguetza restaurant.
You'll still be able to find Pal Cabron's tacos arabes and antojitos throughout the summer at Las Perlas.
