Favela’s Fusion Upscale, Elegant: Fairfield Restaurant Takes Mexican Dining to Next Level

FAIRFIELD — Before you go to Favela’s Fusion, smash any notions or memories you may have about Mexican dining.

You are not going to a funky dive or a homogenized chain restaurant. And you may not find a typical plate of rice, beans and an entree for less than $10.

At Favela’s, you are going to experience Mexican fine dining at its best from beginning to end. You will pay more. It will be worth more.

While the exterior of Favela’s Fusion may be nondescript, visitors who enter the restaurant are immediately transported by the sophisticated, artistic and enchanting space inside.

Original art from Guadalajara adorns the walls. Comfortable, intimate seating invites and welcomes. Experienced staff members are on hand to explain the comprehensive and intriguing menu. They are also available to assist with many of the restaurant’s cocktail or wine options available at the full bar.

“We wanted to take the Mexican dining experience to the next level,” says Veronica Favela-Diaz, who together with her husband owns Favela’s Fusion and two other more traditional Mexican restaurants located in Fairfield and Vacaville. “We are not trying to present something fast or cheap, which a lot of people are accustomed to. We worked hard to develop a special vibe and culinary experience that would help show another side of food from Mexico.”

While the entrees are tempting, the restaurant’s appetizers are a fascinating gastronomical journey all on their own. They range from their well-loved guacamole to two different types of ceviche to empanadas and Favela’s exclusive “Z” tacos made with sirloin steak and melted cheese. Special appetizer prices are available from 3 to 6 p.m. daily.

Main plates feature classics with new twists, such as the Enchiladas Oaxaquenas dish that offers corn tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and topped with a customized mole sauce (a traditional gravy made of dried chilies, plantains, raisins, chocolate and nuts) that is made from scratch. Also on the menu is a jumbo shrimp dish in a tequila sauce and Favelas well-known and beloved Chile Relleno. Prices for appetizers can range from $7.50 to $10.25 while entrees average at about $20.

“Our food is top quality,” says Favela-Diaz. “Truly good Mexican food is very complicated and there are several steps that must be taken to ensure that it’s special. We have a consultant chef from Napa who lived in Mexico and was inspired by his grandmother’s dishes. He has helped us with making sure we continue to offer the best of authentic Mexican cooking but also modern techniques. Everything we make is chopped, peeled and roasted on site. We don’t take any shortcuts.”

Favela-Diaz, who has an insatiable curiosity about culture and cuisine, is celebrating her 25th anniversary in the restaurant business this year.

“It just started out as a crazy idea of mine to go into the business, but I really found a passion for it,” she says.

She gives a great deal of the credit to her staff members. Many of them have been with her since she started out.

“There is so much passion among the people who work here, and they really make it happen,” she says.

Favela’s Fusion is located at 1500 Oliver Road, Suite D in Fairfield. The hours of operation are 11 a.m. 9 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. More information is available by visiting or calling 707-421-8484.

Founder's Message - The Academy of 21st Century Learning

 The Academy of 21st Century Learning is conveniently located in The Nut Tree Plaza in Vacaville. Your student will love it here—it’s inviting, challenging, safe, and fun! We have a mascot (Sophie the Shih Tzu) and a vibrant team of innovative and caring educators. Our educational games in the lobby even make parents want to get in on the learning, and where else can you write on the walls and tables, all in the name of education? So how does this all come together? As our model, The Academy of 21st Century Learning uses a framework comprised of four key categories that prepare students for the complex demands of learning in the 21st century.

  • Core Subjects in the 21st Century: All schools pay their respects to the core subjects –math, English, science, etc. –but we take our students to the next level by rigorously emphasizing critical thinking and analysis, creativity, and adaptability in all areas of their lives, whether it’s AP English, basketball, or Yearbook Club. 
  • Learning and Innovation Skills: What does Google teach a child? In today’s world, where there are many “right” answers, a search engine may be able to deliver the answer, but that does not mean it is actually capable of instilling the learning and innovation skills necessary for success. 
  • Information and Technology: Today’s textbook is a tablet. Although many teens claim to be technologically savvy, we realize the necessary tools for the 21st Century go well beyond being able to install your grandmother’s printer software. To this end, The Academy teaches advanced computing skills—we hold computer programming classes, and our tutors incorporate the use of advanced computational software in their instruction. 
  • Life and Career Skills: What happens when school ends and you’re faced with a real-life problem? Can you add it? Format it in MLA? Boil it in a beaker to find a solution? We prepare students life beyond the classroom by pushing them to their limits with challenging problems. The Academy is a place where it’s okay to be wrong. In fact, we embrace it, as no one has ever developed a strong character by solving easy math problems and being right all the time. 

Successful tomorrows start at The Academy!

My father, Mr. Naidu started as an ice cream vendor on the streets of Dixon, California, 30 years ago.  We all grew up selling ice cream on the streets of Dixon.  As soon as we got our driver’s license, our father gave us an ice cream truck to teach us responsibility and the value of a hard earned dollar.  Even till this day, we are known as THE ICE CREAM family in Dixon.  I remember throwing candies out from the trucks at the Dixon Mayfair Parade.  Good times!!!

Today our pride and joy is this wholesale novelty warehouse, which is operated by husband Ravi, my two son’s Shivam and Avineet and myself, Julz.  We are open seven days a week from 8am to 1pm, weather permitting.  Our hours change for the winter months.

Star Tech European - Automotive Service and Repair Performance Specialists

Star Tech European

23 Union Way

Vacaville, CA 95687

About Star Tech European

We are a European Automotive Service and Repair facility. We specialize in Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, Audi, Volkswagen, Volvo and Mini. We are also a Bosche Service Center.

From minor services like oil changes to major repairs we are skilled and ready to service your vehicle with care and thoroughness. With over 35 years of experience, we have the knowledge to give you the best service possible.

Unlike most repair facilities, the owner of this facility is the head mechanic!

A Bit of History
Don Westhaver has been working on cars in Vallejo for over 35 years and was shop foreman for the Mercedes-Benz, Porsche dealer in Vallejo for 15 years. He was the recipient of the rare and coveted Star Technician award from the Mercedes-Benz factory. Don also has a great deal of Porsche factory training and has the Audi/VW Quality Control award as well. When that dealership closed, Don decided to go out on his own.

We moved to Vacaville 9 years ago and it began to make more sense to move our business to Vacaville. In January, 2008 we opened for business at our current location. We have been busy ever since with very little advertising and are very pleased that we made the move.

How We Feel About Business

The auto repair business doesn't have the  best reputation, so we go the extra mile to build trust. That includes taking extra time to really explain what your car needs and why. Our goal is to give professional, friendly, honest service without the stress and hassle of going to the dealer. We will never sell you something you don't need.
