The setup: Owned and operated by Lisa, an artist and foodie from Mexico City, Bo, a chef trained in Australia, and Tar, a doctor and foodie, Tacos and Salsa celebrates the diversity and deep flavours of Mexican home cooking. After four years at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 18, the restaurant is relocating this month to a slightly larger venue midway down the same Soi. The shophouse has been completely renovated and decorated with bright Mexican decor and original artwork.
Signature dishes: Tacos and Salsa offers traditional Mexican food rich in flavour and served in generous portions. Highlights include Enchiladas (corn tortillas filled with a choice of grilled chicken, chicken tinga, grilled beef, pork carnitas, homemade chorizo, al pastor pork, or vegetarian options) topped with homemade tomato salsa, melted cheese and sour cream, and served with Mexican fried rice and beans; Nachos, topped with tasty beans, generous amounts of melted cheese, sour cream, jalapeños and olives, with the option to add carnitas or grilled beef; and Soft tacos, whose tasty fillings are perfectly matched with a variety of salsas.
New menu: At Tacos and Salsa’s new location chef Bo will be adding even more authentic Mexican dishes to her menu, such as Taquitos dorados, deep fried rolled crunchy tacos served with cheese, sour cream and guacamole; and Cochinita pibil Huaraches, juicy slow roasted pork infused with flavours of achiote, orange, and Mexican spices, served on a tortilla stuffed with beans and topped with a purple onion relish.
