Casa Bernal Taqueria celebrated its grand opening Tuesday at 2122 Shattuck Avenue with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, a 10-piece mariachi band, and $2 beers.

The new taqueria, which opened in the space once occupied by Amanda’s, is the project of Guillermo Bernal and his father. Their family owns a number of restaurants in southern California and Mexico. It features Niman Ranch pork and beef, free range chicken, and organic produce.
