Who doesn’t like tacos?! And whether they're on your plate or on Miguel Cervantes Jr.’s tees, they’re all good! The native Angelino creates everything with enthusiasm because it’s really hard not to get excited about tacos, tees, and a brand that is trying to spread the vibrant Southern California culture. “This weird perfect storm of So Cal culture” that is Tacocidal Tendencies; skate and punk culture, L.A. sports and you guessed it, the namesake taco, are all the things that excite Cervantes. Oishi Barrio is the new Taco spot!
"It was a blast! The music, food, and people were great. It was awesome connecting with the other vendors and getting together for a fun day in Little Tokyo. I’m looking forward to seeing how this grows!" - Miguel Cervantes Jr., Tacocidal Tendencies
La Sirena’s Liz Garibaldi loves herself deeply. So much so, that when she got inspired to start the apparel brand, she quit a lucrative job and threw herself into creating full-time. Garibaldi knew that only creating would fulfill her, and it shows in La Sirena’s pieces. As La Sirena has grown, the Latina owner has focused on making the message of the brand one of positivity, self-love, and helping others through her work. Help yourself by treating your closet to one of her tees at Oishi Barrio.
"Oishi Barrio made me feel seen and welcomed. I’m happy to see L.A. vibing out. People from all walks of life in one place. You can feel the unity". - Liz Garibaldi, La Sirena
