"On the byways of Baja, there isn't a burrito in sight. Any day, in any town, you can choose from a vast array of made-to-order tacos and salsas, fresh-from-the-ocean seafood cocktels, grilled corn, succulent fruits skewered with lime and chili powder, vivid fruit juices, piping-hot cinnamon churros, neon-bright candies that stick in your teeth, and frozen treats with names like Angel's Kiss…and that's just the beginning."

Where You'll Find Deborah's Creations

SOL Mexican Cocina

SOL Mexican Cocina

SOL Cocina is a unique restaurant and bar featuring Executive Chef Deborah Schneider's bold, modern interpretations of traditional Coastal Mexican cuisine with a focus on fresh, sustainable ingredients.

Designed to echo the expansive sea, sky, and desert of the Baja peninsula, SOL features old world charm juxtaposed with an urban comfort, including an open exhibition kitchen with counter seating for guests who like to see the bustling kitchen that mimics the Baja taco bar. To complement the dining experience, SOL's bar creates spectacular hand-crafted-to order fresh fruit margaritas and cocktails inspired by the authentic, seasonal flavors of the menu. The restaurant offers over 70 artisan, premium and ultra premium tequilas and mescals.

SOL Cocina has locations in Newport Beach, CA and Scottsdale, AZ. Visit for more information.



SOL Mexican Cocina

With solita, Executive Chef Deborah Schneider has created yet another unique interpretation of contemporary Mexican food, with its own personality, look and distinctive menu. Similar to SOL, solita builds on an appreciation for fresh ingredients, big flavors, and seasonally changing menus.  They deliver a Mexican food experience in a way that represents the soul of coastal Baja California.

 At the heart of the restaurant and the menu is a wood-fired open grill and oak smoker, the inspiration for Executive Chef Deborah Schneider's unique takes on familiar Mexican favorites such as tacos, carne asada, skirt steak asada, ancho chile chicken, oak-roasted chipotle chicken, house carnitas, red chile borracho beef and wood-grilled wild fish - all created with premium fresh ingredients and served with delicious hand-made salsas.

solita tacos & margaritas is located at Huntington Beach’s Bella Terra Center ( 7631 Edinger Avenue, Suite 1508 ).
