Happy National Taco Day! Let’s taco about how lucky we are to get to celebrate a day like this?
It’s not hard to tell I’m crazy about Mexican food and always on a hunt for a perfect one.
My no.1 love is Cosme, HERE. I love it because it’s authentically flavorful and not overly oily. The portions are small and beautifully plated. It’s the details that count!
Cosme is unbeatable unless you know of otherwise, and please let me know.
And my Mexican side-chick is La Esquina, HERE. It has a sexy hidden lounge in the basement which I highly recommend for dinner. You *must* make rsvp for that.
Another one of my favorites when I used to live in Boston is Loco Taco, HERE.
Anyways, let’s resume our Taco day at Tacombi, shall we?
This super cute joint sits in Soho. I mean, how can you resist taking photos here???
*There’s another one near Flatiron building.
The place is rustic & retro, burst in flavorful spice.
It reminds me of those delightful summer beach days back to Tulum!
We ordered everything that looks good on Instagram…
You get to circle out your food on a card.
My outfit is from Storets.

I LOVE IT
Roasted chicken thigh marinated in recado rojo sauce, served with frijoles refritos & pickled red onions.
Okay, my favorite out of them all is Veracruzana.
Seared Shrimp a la plancha on top of Berkshire pork chorizo over refried beans, topped with cilantro & onions…
Orgasm in ze mouth…
Simple rice and beans.
Basic fish tacos.
Fresh grilled corn served off the cobb con cotija cheese, covered in homemade morita mayo & chili pequin.
Best part? It’s shaved off into a cup so you won’t look embarrassing eating in front of your crush!
Now that’s how you celebrate a taco day!
Me too, Ariel, me too.
