Zamorana, a Mexican restaurant that opened in a taco truck about a year ago, has hung a shingle in town.
Last week the restaurant moved from the truck outside Sound Food to the small restaurant space adjacent to Treasure Island. The spot, which previously housed Uptown Takeout, includes some indoor seating.
Owner Jorge Garnica said the truck was popular and he enjoyed cooking there, but the winter months were approaching and he wanted to move permanently into a warmer space.
“I look at the customer’s side. I really don’t want to stand outside and wait for food when it’s cold and rainy,” he said.
Zamorana’s truck will return next year for catered events and the farmers market, he said.
Along with the new space, Garnica said the restaurant will soon expand its hours and its menu, adding breakfast and a few new lunch and dinner items. The breakfast menu will include traditional Mexican dishes, such as huevos rancheros.
“It’s going to be a really good breakfast,” he said.
Zamorana is currently open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
