ABOUT THE HER HELMET THURSDAYS PROJECT:
Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at http://www.bikemonterey.org.

ABOUT THIS PARTICIPANT:
After years of popularity with their mobile food vendor format at regional markets, the owners of Birrieria & Restaurant Estilo Coalcoman realized it was time for a restaurant location. They set to the task of remodeling the interior of this building on Castroville's "main street," Merritt Street, and created a beautiful new interior in the space formerly occupied by Central Texan BBQ.

Among numerous popular menu items at the restaurant are their birria de res (beef soup)and long-simmered stews, both clamored for at their mobile food service spots too, as noted by Shiho Fukushima of the Monterey County Weekly in her 9/25/14 story, "The best spot for authentic Latino grub arrives with a swap meet attached." http://www.montereycountyweekly.com/food_wine/the-best-spot-for-authentic-latino-grub-arrives-with-a/article_3b094a92-443c-11e4-8e36-001a4bcf6878.html

What makes this new restaurant, opened in early 2015, a great spot besides the food and ambiance? The lovely staff! Come see for yourself.

Bike Tips:

Located on Castroville's "Main Street" (Merritt Street).

Touring cyclists and others biking the Pacific Coast route will find this an easy location to reach.

If you're biking the Class I bike trail coming from the south, exit where the trial parallels Haro Street near Merritt. Then bike north on Merritt Street; Birrieria & Restaurant Estilo Coalcoman will be on your left (the west side of Merritt Street).
