Moles La Tia Chef Rocio Camacho Resurfaces in Lynwood


Speaking again of El Señor Teenage Gluster (isn't everybody nowadays?) and menus from the Yucatan, the web's wunderkind foodie recently tracked down the real-life "Tia" from Moles la Tia, who earned a surplus of raves before bailing the restaurant without a trace. Fortunately, she's been located in Lynwood and has big plans.

Cabral got a recent call from Rocio "Tia" Camacho to announce that she was planning her own restaurant in Huntington Park. In the meantime, she has a new position cooking at Lynwood's La Huasteca in Plaza Mexico and is in the process of retooling the five-year old eatery's menu with Yucatan specialties inspired by a recent trip. Food GPS got a first-taste of Camcho's cooking, which was heavy on achiote rubs, a cochinita pibil-topped, bean-filled tortilla, and of course, some kickass moles using Kahlua and shrimp. Catch up with Camacho yourself at La Huasteca, 3150 East Imperial Highway, Lynwood. 310-537-8800.
