A humble yet historically rich town, Talpa is admired for its time-honored traditions that echo through the centuries. This is the legacy of the true Mexican spirit that we are deeply passionate about sharing with you.

At El Talpense, the heart of Talpa beats in every dish we prepare. We strive to craft your meals as they have been created for generations in the Mexican highlands – preserving the authenticity while stirring in our own dash of Californian charm.

Each dish is a tribute to the region’s historical significance and rich gastronomic traditions, with our menu items proudly reflecting the tastes and textures that are beloved in Talpa. From Mole Poblano, enriched by its combination of chili and chocolate, to the hearty Birria stew and the ever-popular enchiladas, every mouthful celebrates the breadth and depth of our culinary roots.
