We hired Milpa Grille to cater dinner for our wedding reception in Boyle Heights and they were incredible!! We chose a three-taco option (birria, brisket, and fish) and all of them were amazing. Our guests were raving about how much they loved the tacos. It was also beautifully plated with edible flowers and blue corn tortillas. They were not just willing, but expertly able to meet our requests for food service to accommodate one huge table that seated 75 guests. They kept the tacos coming the whole time, prepping them as-needed to keep the food warm, refilling platters and keeping a close eye on the table and where replenishing was needed.

Ana and the whole time were very professional and easy to work with. When planning a large event like this it's hard to express the impact that has - it was such a relief to know that they had everything under control. They also went above and beyond what we hired them for. For example, when things changed during the event they even helped us wash all the forks for dessert (this was completely out of their scope) and they stayed later than planned since dinner lasted longer than we expected.

They also helped us prepare before the event with printed menus (with ingredients list for our guests) as well as coordination on platter sizes, a walk through of the space, and answering questions about food allergies, etc.. We are so grateful that Milpa Grille catered our wedding and took care of our guests. We love their ethos and the way they connect with the community. Connecting our community was what our wedding was about and they were the perfect people to support that.

Thank you again, Ana and the whole team!!!

One of my friends posted a very delicious picture on Instagram where it showed a burrito among other yummy plates which immediately made me want to try this place out! I work in Little Tokyo so it was a very convenient drive for my coworker and I. It didn't take more than 7 minutes, without traffic of course! Just a heads up, there is no parking. There was no parking anywhere near so we parked a block and a half from the restaurant. Nice neighborhood. We had our order taken and as we waited we sat outside their outside seating. Chilly day. One of the guys who was having coffee and was alone started being weird with us and that made us feel uncomfortable so we decided to take our order to-go instead. Our order took a while to be ready so that felt like an eternity for my coworker and I as we had this creepy guy trying to talk to us. We finally got our order and drove off to eat our meal. Well, we ended up getting one item wrong and one of our bowls had a hair in it. I was pretty upset. I called them, but no one answered. Maybe they were busy. The little food that I did have was okay! I just wish someone had answered our call to maybe fix this situation. Hope to come back soon.

My husband and I visited Milpa Grille when they first opened their doors to the community of Boyle Heights. We met the lovely owner Dan who gave us a talk on what inspired him to open Milpa Grille and his idea behind it. We were all for it. We even met with him later on to check some properties out. The idea of a healthy option in Boyle Heights seemed like the right step, but it seems like that idea is a thing of the past for this place.

We came back just recently and my guess is there’s a new owner. There has been a lot of changes to the establishment and their menu.

Sadly, we were very disappointed with our service.

The woman who took our order was very friendly, but it took a while for my husband and I to get what we ordered.
The outside area is very cute, but it was not clean. They had a trash bin outside that had so much trash in it, it was starting to spill on to the sidewalk.
The music that was playing (in my opinion) was distasteful.
Unfortunately, when we received our order it was wrong, but we had waited so long we did not want to wait any longer by telling them so, so we just ate our food.
My husband ordered a salad, but some of the greens did not look good. Some of them were a bit slimy and they were on the yellow side. I ordered a chicken bowl, but instead I received a pork bowl. The pork was was slightly salty too!
I will say, the salsa was really delicious and it helped getting rid of the salty taste.
The drinks were okay.

I really wish this place the best, but we won’t be coming back. It seems very chaotic in there.

A couple of my amigos asked me to try Milpa Grill so we did. Uf! The guys serving coffee were being too friendly, borderline made us feel uncomfortable. The food was 4/10. We order, got our food & it was wrong. We decided to just leave it as that. Not happy.

The food was delicious and the employees were very nice! I got one birria taco, one mushroom taco, and one of the Passionfruit lemonades. The tacos were great and the drink was really incredible. Hopefully I'll be returning soon :)

My favorite restaurant in Boyle Heights. Amazing food from Jonathan L. Perez of Macheen. Great breakfast burritos and tacos. Cafe Cafe Mobile makes delicious coffee and fresh juice drinks.

This place is amazing! It's a must try local business to support. They have vegan and vegetarian options. I usually order a Mushroom al pastor taco and add black beans with blue corn tortilla. The coffee and drinks from Cafe Cafe mobile coffee is a must! They have coffee teas and more. I fell in love with coffee because of this place I recommend the vanilla latte or the turmeric latte. ????

Who knew a bowl without rice could taste so good. Quality ingredients and more than enough portion on my plate. I ordered the milpa bowl. I came because I learned that they have a fridge outside for the community and I wanted to support their business. Stop by, you won't regret it. A lot of Healthy options!
