Authentic Mexican cuisine has always eluded the North Shore of Kauai, until now! The new Fredrico’s FreshMex Cuisine has just opened in the Princeville Shopping Center and it’s a breath of fresh air for us foodies looking for variety. I spoke with the owner, Freddy, and learned that he was born in Acapulco, Mexico, which explains the authenticity of his food. He moved to Orange County, California at the age of 15 and has now transplanted to our island. The mainland’s loss is our gain. He prides himself on using only the freshest, organic, locally grown avocados and tomatoes, all natural hormone free chicken, beef raised in New Zealand, and trans fat free cooking oils. His menu is a creative fusion of Mexican and Island flavors, and is very reasonably priced which is yet another refreshing bonus to your experience at Fredrico’s. They are open everyday from 7am – 8pm for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dine in or to go, you must try Fredrico’s! 808-826-7177. Let us know what you think!
