It has been designed by the architectural firm Esrawe Studio, with the experience of its excellent team, made up of the architects Héctor Esrawe, Javier García-Rivera, María Santibáñez, Aloisio Guerrero, Alessandro Sperdutti, Daniela Pulido, and Federico Stefanovich, who, in a space of 240 square meters, designed this fabulous restaurant-taquería in the busiest street in the city, Avenida de los Insurgentes, in Mexico City.

In 2017, the brand began an expansion process and opened a new restaurant in this new location, in which El Califa establishes the guidelines for its evolution as a brand, revealing a new interior design and identity.

Spacious and modern interior of the restaurant

Esrawe Studio found its source of inspiration in the tortilla and its variants. Tortilla has been an important part of the lives of people in Mexico since pre-Hispanic times, when the locals used corn tortillas as a dish, as food, and as utensils. Today, everyone finds ingenious ways to use it, creating a personal touch in the way of preparing, folding, and holding a taco.
