Dude, Where’s Ki Mexico?

ki mexico1

A little over a month ago, I told you guys that Ki Mexico was getting a restaurant via the Shreveport Times. At that time owner Rodrigo Mandragon didn’t want to disclose where the location would be. That is until now…

Loving This Life! has secured permission to announce the location of Ki’ Mexico’s upcoming restaurant!

I know y’all want to know. I’ve heard your conversations. Several of you have even asked me. 986 of you even shared their story about the restaurant. I think it’s safe to say, we all are excited about this.

Before we get to the where, let’s discuss a few things.

Who is Ki Mexico?

Ki Mexico Family

Ki Mexico Family

Ki Mexico is a family of Mexican rockstars (Federico Villasenor, Eleazar Mondragon, Lido Villasenor, Rodrigo Mondragon, Sofia Alanis, and Juan Mondragon not pictured) that uses their magical rockstar powers to produce some of the most delicious tacos, sandwiches, “Cup Ks” (cupcakes) and other treats solely for my our consumption.

You’ve seen them on Fridays at Great Raft, Saturdays at the Shreveport Farmers’ Market and at various catering jobs throughout the area but come August we will get to visit their restaurant!!

So let’s get to why you are here

The family is aiming for August to open the restaurant but they want to make sure that everything is done correctly.

“August is what we are aiming for. Just have to make sure we have everything ready and running. I don’t want to be half way open. I want to make it right” Rodrigo Mondragon told me.



They will of course have their delicious tacos and sandwiches, but a few additions will be added to the main menu like the Felipe Cheese Steak, Salmon Tostadas and Salads. They will also have espresso flan and Elea’s Magnificent Cup Ks. They will offer also offer “fancy” dinner with three or four courses paired with Mexican wine or Great Raft Brewing Beer.

Why this location from Rodrigo Mondragon

“We believe that the location is perfect for us because first the area. A lot of our customers live around and I wanna make them feel comfortable and cozy. Then the size-With only a few modifications and a little remodeling, we can make the building a great and cozy place. A patio would be added to enjoy the weather when it permits”
