Alejandro Gamarra has been in the local restaurant industry since 1993. His culinary journey started in a Taco Truck, Tacos Acapulco, at the corner of Royal and West A street in Hayward. His first brick and mortar, Metro Taquero, opened in 2004 and has become a Hayward staple. He now operates four Metro Taqueros with a fifth location in the works, also in Hayward.
In 2007, he took the next step and opened a full service restaurant, The Mexican Restaurant and Bar. This neighborhood Mexican restaurant is a local favorite and also serves as a commissary kitchen for all Metro Taqueros. Alejandro has a passion for the industry and a love for Hayward. He believes Hayward has the potential to become a culinary destination.
Casa Del Toro on B street is his introduction to elevated dining. With the addition of Executive Chef Serafin Cruz and Beverage Director Samuel Jimenez, he believes he has the ideal team to put Hayward in the conversation of great dining destinations.
Alejandro believes it all starts with the very best ingredients and a commitment to consistency in execution. And never forget all his success is owed to beans, rice and a lot of tacos.
