Entries in taocs del norte (1)
Posted on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 | Brea
as many of you know, we shot BFF in marfa, texas for over week, which in film time is exactly 7 and a half years.
although my head was in the film, i was able to see a little of the beautiful town of marfa and i thought i'd list a few of my favorite eating spots.
pizza foundation was a cast/crew favorite. yes for the pizza, but also because pizza foundation is right smack in the middle of the tiny town of marfa. you need to get downtown, left at pizza foundation. you trying to drive out of town, head past pizza foundation. need to get to the rock store? know where pizza foundation is?
tacos del norte not only had nice tacos and were one of the few places open during the day (marfa tends to be a little quiet around lunch time), they also let us shoot there! the colors on the exterior beg to be filmed on Super 16. so, of course, we did!
fine dining in the middle of west texas? only in marfa. the food at miniature rooster could rival any restaurant in a bigger city. we hit this place up too many times to count because of the great food and the cute guys working in the kitchen. :) plus, they were nice enough to lend their kitchen to us during filming. thanks miniature rooster!
we love food shark! they catered for us a few days on the film and it's some of the best falafel i've ever had!
padre's in the kind of bar i wish was down the street from my house. they don't make bars like this in LA. cool place with cheap bar food that actually tastes good. and obviously, good booze.
who knew there would be so many great places in marfa!
