Little Onion Mexican Restaurant’s second location is now open at Irvine’s Walnut Village Center. The new casual Mexican eatery is owned by Lori Reich Rowe, whose father Lorin Reich founded the original Little Onion Mexican Restaurant 56 years ago.

“I’m so proud to honor my father and apply my years of hospitality experience into this exciting new Irvine location,” Rowe said. “Over the years, Little Onion has gained a reputation as the place to go for good, authentic, Mexican food, and I am thrilled to carry on this family tradition over five decades later,”

The newest Little Onion Mexican Restaurant is located at 14429 Culver Dr. in the former Bank of Hope building. Offering fresh and locally sourced traditional Mexican cuisine, including vegetarian options, at reasonable prices.

Chef Agustin Bruno now heads culinary operations at the newest Little Onion as well as the Santa Ana location – bringing nine years of industry experience including his previous two years as sous chef at Cha Cha’s Latin Kitchen in Brea, California. His menu for the Irvine location shares items from the Santa Ana eatery, such as Shrimp and Chorizo Tacos with Avocado Tomatillo Salsa and Pork Chop with Mole Negro as well as seasonal creative twists on the classics such as Guajillo Short Rib Braised Crispy Tempura Fried Tamal. Beverages include local craft beers, crafted cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks and a carefully selected wine list.
