Preston Center’s latest fast-casual restaurant dishes up healthy Mexican food

Cedars Xpress and Grip Mediterranean couldn’t cut it at the Preston Center, but another restaurant hopes to make our neighborhood its home.

Lala’s Mexican Cafe is merging two popular trends — healthy eating and fast casual dining — to appeal to neighborhood families and shoppers alike. CultureMap’s Teresa Gubbins reports Michelle Mireles, the owner of One Arts Plaza’s Jorge’s Tex-Mex Café, is the concept’s creator.

“We’ll offer fresh salsas made daily, and do a more conscious approach to our sourcing,” Mireles told Teresa Gubbins. “That means grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, eggs from pasture-raised chickens, and organic chicken. The chips and tortillas will be organic. We’ll also include vegetarian offerings, and something that not everyone does, which is a healthy menu for kids.”
