NEWPORT BEACH, CA – The California coast has a unique vibe that sets it apart from anywhere else in the United States, and unique Mexicali cuisine that brings foodies nationwide flocking. Situated in Newport Beach, California, GuacAmigos is an ideal destination for Happy Hour, takeout, or a delightful meal at any time of day. This lively cantina captivates both visitors and residents, who continuously return for the delightful ambiance, delectable Mexicali dishes, and a captivating view of Newport Bay, a snapshot worthy of an Instagram Story.
Two unlikely celebrity minds are behind the oceanfront eatery- Nicole Dahm Kelly and Tony Hawk. Kelly, former Playmate, is responsible for GuacAmigos’s decorative quirks. She incorporated a red chili wall and various different textiles throughout the restaurant, giving it a unique vibe. Tony Hawk, legendary American skateboarder, uses the restaurant’s walls to display sports artifacts like a surfboard from Kelly Slater, a snowboard from Shaun White, and a BMX bike from Matt Hoffman.
Whether it be Happy Hour, Taco & Tequila Tuesday, or weekend brunch, GuacAmigos has a menu and dish for every occasion. Every meal begins with complimentary fresh tortilla chips, enhanced with a tantalizing chili powder that creates a kickoff for the upcoming meal. Restaurantgoers love the Queso Birria tacos, a juicy birria-a traditional Mexican goat or beef stew-taco topped with queso, red onions, and consommé, a clarified broth that adds a flavorful punch. From crispy nachos to juicy chicken fajitas, and creamy fish tacos to packed burritos, GuacAmigos entrées deliver exquisite taste bursting with the perfect levels of heat, sweetness, and umami.
Due to GuacAmigos’s location on the Newport Bay, patrons have a breathtaking view of the ocean as they dine. GuacAmigos’s drink menu provides a wide selection of fine cocktails to sip on while watching sailboats, Duffy boats, and yachts make their way in and out of the marina. The GuacAmigos Margarita, a citrusy medley of tequila and fruit, is a perfect choice to relax and enjoy the view. And, during Happy Hour, the sunset perfectly completes the California dream.
Tourists, local students from UC Irvine, and celebrities like the LA Chargers enjoy GuacAmigos’s high energy and various different menus. Handcrafted cocktails straight off the cocktail menu like the GuacAmigos Margarita are always a must. And, weekends feature a special brunch menu, housing dishes like Mexican eggs benedict- a gorgeous benedict with fresh lobster, pepper jack, and golden hash browns.
Overall, Nicole Dahm Kelly and Tony Hawk have developed the perfect Mexicali bistro for good eating and high energy, accompanied by a breathtaking Pacific view. GuacAmigos’s extensive menu provides ample opportunity to explore new dishes, revisit old favorites, and try a new margarita.
