Award-Winning Chefs Open New Mexican Restaurant


Xclusive Taqueria Moderna, a modern elevated Mexican cuisine restaurant, just opened at Terrace Shops in Ladera Ranch. The new restaurant is owned and operated by three award-winning, fine dining executive chefs including Golden Foodie Award winner Chef Manny Velasco, Food Network Star Chef Chris Tzorin, and Chef Eddie Perez.

The menu is constantly changing as all dishes are prepared using fresh, local, organic, sustainable, and seasonal ingredients, with gluten-free and vegan options available, all at family-friendly price points.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, with a weekend brunch option available. Along with the restaurant, the Xclusive team books out the Xclusive Food Truck for residential or corporate events, and offers catering as well as private chef dinners with custom menus that customers can entertain in the comfort of their own home.

The menu includes an array of gourmet tacos, such as Angus rib eye, cajun Baja shrimp, chicken mole, and pork belly. Some traditional classic dishes include enchiladas de camarón, las fajitas, braised short ribs, cheese chile Relleno, and street tacos with choice of steak, chicken, carnitas, and al pastor for protein. There are also shared plates such as calamari, ceviche, and empanadas, as well as Mexican soda and agua frescas with alcoholic beverages coming soon.

Open Sunday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
