Holiday Traditions Old and New…Make Yours Mi Cocina

Explore new menu items and unique gift ideas.

Mi Cocina turns 30 this summer. That’s three decades of family and friends and three generations of guests gathering around the table (and Guacamole Mexicano) to mark special occasions, celebrations, milestones, and holidays. This holiday season is another opportunity to create even more memories with Mi Cocina—whether you stop by a restaurant or bring Mi Cocina home to your own kitchen table.

As usual, each Mi Cocina location is uniquely and beautifully decorated for the holidays, now through New Year’s Day. Here is a sample of different ways Mi Cocina is celebrating the season, providing you with plenty of opportunities to make the season merry and bright.

On the Menu

New flavors of holiday tamales, including chicken verde and pork picoso. They are available for pick-up by the dozen, either hot and fresh or frozen. Buy a few dozen today, toss them in the freezer, and Christmas Eve dinner is complete.

Ribeye al Carbon is back on the menu. Enjoy the dish—complete with rice, bean soup, guacamole, pico de gallo, and tortillas—in the restaurant or take a plate home for a special dinner.

Order the tamales, ribeyes for everyone in the family, or any Mi Cocina menu favorite by calling the restaurant nearest you or at Don’t forget those to go margaritas!

For three decades, Mi Cocina has been part of the fabric of Dallas-Fort Worth’s most treasured holiday celebrations. While you are out holiday shopping or looking for a place to celebrate the best part of the season—friends and family—enjoy Mi Cocina at Highland Park Village, Southlake Town Square, West Village, The Star, Sundance Square, and Watters Creek. Or sit rink-side at Mi Cocina at the Galleria Mall while admiring the 95-foot-tall Christmas tree and watching the ice skaters pass by—yet another holiday tradition for Mi Cocina guests year after year.
