¿Están listos? Taco Fest is coming town. The tortilla-fueled festival is bringing you 15 taco specials at 15 restaurants across 15 days from Nov 1-15
The details are still scant, but you can expect to fill up on everything from carne guisada (pork shoulder simmered with tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and seasonings) at The Mexican and pork belly carnitas at La Monita to pork birria (slow-stewed meat) and vegetarian tacos at Cholos.
Not all that long ago, you’d be hard-pressed to find more than a handful of restaurants in the city serving quality tacos representing the whole of Mexico rather than insipid Tex-Mex fare. The sheer number and variety of venues taking part in Taco Fest, as well as support from the Embassy of Mexico, speaks to the rapid growth of this segment of the restaurant scene.
According to the organizers, prizes will be given away daily, and if you register online, you’ll be able to collect and redeem points for extra goodies.
