Whether you prefer flour or corn, soft or crunchy, there are few things that are quite as versatile as the beloved taco. Whether you’re old school traditional or get down with meat alternatives, there’s truly a taco out there for nearly every type of eater – there are even chocolate tacos. In celebration of National Taco Day, October 4, we’d like to serve up our top three local tacos that are anything but traditional.
Crispy Crab Tacos from Wong Gonzalez
Wong Gonzalez turns traditional tacos on their head and serves them up with a taste of Asian fusion and the Crispy Crab Tacos are no exception. Thai fried croquettes are topped with avocado corn relish, pineapple salsa, shredded cabbage, strawberry yuzu sauce, and cashews.
Smoked Brisket Taco from Tazza Kitchen
Southern, but make it a taco and top it with guacamole, pico de gallo, chimichurri crema, and valentina hot sauce for a mouthwatering combination that’s uniquely Tazza Kitchen.
Portobella Tacos from Don’t Look Back
You don’t have to be a meat-eater to get in on the taco action at Don’t Look Back. The Portabella taco is marinated in poblano vinaigrette and served either gringo style with cheese, lettuce, sour cream, and salsa, or traditional with cilantro, red onion, and lime.
