The Americanization of tacos and burritos has helped us forget where they actually come from, but one trip to Toloache Taqueria will take you back to Mexico.
Chef Julian Medina, a Mexico City native and Iron Chef competitor, introduces unique flavor pairings that thrill.
Consider his tacos, available for two bucks each on Tuesdays from noon to 5 o’clock.
Your options include Negro Modello-braised brisket with tomatillo salsa and Mexican chocolate-glazed pork with chipotle-cabbage slaw.
Those and other combinations are available in burrito and sandwich form, too. There are also salads, soups and desserts, like a luscious flan, that are just as authentic and flavorful.
