Owners of Tacos Chiwas, the Chihuahua-style restaurant with locations in Phoenix, Chandler, and Mesa, have announced plans to open a restaurant in Tempe next year. The new spot, to be called Cocina Chiwas, will open in Culdesac Tempe, the “first car-free neighborhood built from scratch in the US.”
According to Twitter, co-owners Armando Hernandez and Nadia Holguin’s newest brick-and-mortar will celebrate the regional cuisines of Chihuahua, Sonora, and Sinaloa.
Culdesac Tempe’s blog goes on, “Cocina Chiwas will serve an expanded menu and fresh seasonal food… you will find everything from innovative chile-centric vegetable bowls and wood-fired cheese crisps, to refreshing hibiscus margaritas served over a brunch consisting of deconstructed breakfast burritos, Chihuahuan french toast, and seasonal salads.”
Culdesac Tempe is an entirely car-free rental community with parks and pools, as well as a grocery store, co-working spaces, food trucks, and, soon, Cocina Chiwas. Accompanying Cocoina Chiwas in the development will be Firecreek Coffee Co. and Street Corner Urban Market.
As far as we know, the exact address of Cocina Chiwas has yet to be announced. The owners were unavailable for comment at the time of publication.
