Arbor-hills-Day-of-the-dead

Beginning the evening of November 1st and continuing through to the next day is Mexico’s colorful celebration, Day of the Dead. Despite the grim name, in Mexico it’s a day of celebration. What better way to celebrate than by eating homemade Mexican food? A good place to start is with Mi Compadre, the six-month-old restaurant located on Packard. In Spanish, compadre means “respected friend,” and the name is well-chosen for this establishment co-owned by Nicholas Quintana, Luis Hernandez, and Andres Luna. Quintana and Hernandez grew up together, while Luna is Quintana’s nephew. Most offerings on the Oaxacan menu are made from scratch, and specialties include tlayudas, memalas and tamales. Check the restaurant’s Facebook page for daily specials.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 9am-9pm Monday-Thursday, 9am-10pm, Friday & Saturday, 9am-8pm Sunday
