Horchata, which comes from the Latin term hordeata, which in turn comes from hordeum (barley), is a term related to a Mediterranean tradition of grain-based beverages and also the linguistic root of orgeat syrup.
It originated in North Africa. It is estimated that during the 11th century it began to spread throughout Hispania (now Spain and Portugal). There are 13th-century records of a horchata-like beverage made near Valencia.
From Valencia, where it remained popular, the concept of horchata was brought to the New World. Here, drinks called agua de horchata or simply horchata came to be made with white rice and cinnamon or canella instead of tiger nuts. Sometimes these drinks had vanilla added, or were served adorned with fruit.
Today, these and other similarly flavored plant based beverages are sold in various parts of the world as varieties of horchata or kunnu.

In 1990, a young Veronica and her father Elisardo Favela found a need for a new style of Mexican restaurant; it would be a casual style with festive surroundings. Along with an attractive environment, the food would be the freshest and best tasting every time. This service would also have to fit a family’s budget.
Most importantly, the overall focus would consist in the customer’s appreciation of every savory item. The Favela’s “Familia” believed strongly that the values they established would eventually lead to success. They were right.
By 1993 and demand from out-of-town customers, prompted Veronica to expand the business and open a second location in Vacaville which has been a success since it’s opening. Never straying from the original intention, never losing focus on consistent and affordable Mexican food and excellent service, the restaurant has continued its steady rate of growth. To prove this, by 1998 a third location on the north side of Fairfield was opened. This restaurant was capable to offer many new additions to the menu that only made the restaurant more appealing to the community. After fourteen years, Favela’s is ready to expand into the Sacramento market finding a niche in the West Sacramento area.
