LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- This week on Vista L.A.: The new flavor of Mexico, Besame beauty, and remembering Ricardo Montalban.
Here's some information from the show:
The new flavor of Mexico
It seems like everyone in L.A. loves Mexican food, but it's more than just tacos and burritos being served up at some local favorites. Vista L.A. visited three Mexican restaurants expanding the palette. Guelaguetza Restaurants serve regional dishes from the state of Oaxaca in Southern Mexico. The first Loteria Grill Restaurant opened its doors in 2002 at L.A.'s Original Farmers Market. In 2008, Loteria Grill Chef/Owner Jimmy Shaw opened a second location in Hollywood. In downtown Los Angeles, renowned chef John Rivera Sedlar is serving up his own brand of modern Latino cooking at Rivera Restaurant, who also uses his restaurant as a vehicle to educate people about Latino cuisine and elevate it to what he calls its proper place in the culinary world.

Remembering Ricardo Montalban
Vista L.A. pays tribute to the life and career of the Latino Hollywood legend Ricardo Montalban, who passed away earlier this year. In a distinguished career spanning seven decades, Montalban made well over one hundred film and television appearances. He will perhaps be most remembered for his iconic role as Mr. Roarke on the long-running television show, Fantasy Island. Others will remember him as the menacing Khan in the Star Trek movies or from his role on the Robert Rodriguez "Spy Kids" trilogy. In 1970, Ricardo Montalban founded the "Nosotros" organization to help open doors for Latino actors in Hollywood. Ricardo Montalban passed away on January 14, 2009.
