The barbacoa and al pastor tacos at Muchacho.Photograph by Jennifer Zyman. Memorial Drive isn’t known to have an abundance of great taco offerings—Mi Barrio is a neighborhood favorite, and the breakfast tacos at Homegrown GA always satisfy. But with Muchacho, one of the two new restaurants from Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall owner Michael Lennox to open in the former H. Harper Station space, another solid taco option has finally arrived. Lennox tapped chef Jason Simpson, formerly of St. Cecilia and King and Duke, to be chef de cuisine at both Muchacho and adjoining Golden Eagle under culinary director Taria Camerino. ...

Expect old fashioneds, mojitos, margaritas, and sangria, ...

Propósito taco truck sets up shop in Lindbergh

Source: Atlanta Magazine

Lake Dawson, the corporate chef for Tropical Smoothie Cafe, and his partner Michael Boynton, have a side job and it involves tacos. Boynton, who is native of Austin, Texas, found himself seeking out quality, authentic tacos everywhere he went. The idea for a taco truck was born. Propósito, the duo’s new blue and white food truck that sits in the parking lot of the Exxon at the corner of Lindbergh Drive and Piedmont Road, opened two weeks ago. It serves breakfast and lunch tacos with classic Mexican flavors such as barbacoa and al pastor pork, along with quesadillas and icy ...

Where To Eat This Weekend: Brunch, Tacos, and Brunch Tacos

Okay, quick: First thing you have to do is see whether or not Barbuzzo has sold out of the salted caramel budino choco-tacos we told you about on Monday. They went on sale at 11am and the restaurant was going to be selling them upstairs until they sold out.

Now assuming that the budino choco-tacos are gone (or that they will be shortly), you’re still going to need something else to eat this weekend, right? Well, you’re in luck because this weekend is busy. There’s a ton of stuff to do and places to go. And we’re here to ...

These Mexican tacos are unlike any others in Washington

They’re billed as “tacos de canasta” — or “basket tacos” — on the menu at Mezcalero Cocina Mexicana, which is probably a better name for the snack than the one locals regularly use on the streets of Mexico: “tacos sudados,” which literally translates to “sweated tacos” but is known colloquially as “sweaty tacos.” Relax, the […]

Run, don’t walk, to this new Mexican spot in Plaza Fiesta

An assortment of items from Las Quekas de la Abuela.Photograph by Ted Golden. Plaza Fiesta has always had a place in my heart. As a kid, my mom would take us to wander the labyrinth-like corridors lined with shops hawking everything from cowboy boots to tacos to car insurance. She’d pick up hard-to-find snacks she missed from Mexico and buy us new clothes from Burlington Coat Factory. As an adult, I rarely visited Plaza Fiesta to eat because the food choices seemed to stagnate, especially with so many good Mexican spots elsewhere on Buford Highway. But during a recent visit ...

When chef Alfredo Solis opened El Sol in Logan Circle with his sister Jessica Solis, he thought the Mexican restaurant would mostly serve carryout. But it turned out to be quite the opposite: people wanted to dine in for tacos and Coronas. So for their next venture, Mezcalero Cocina Mexicano, the siblings have doubled their space, expanded the bar, and added to the menu. The restaurant opens Friday in Columbia Heights.

The New Taco Bamba Is a Love Letter to Northern Virginia

Source: Washingtonian Food

It’s easy to assume Victor Albisu’s new Vienna restaurant is Mexican. The spinoff of his Falls Church carryout boasts an expanded menu of tostadas, nachos, quesadillas, and tacos. In fact, the name Taco Bamba was chosen because in Peru bamba is slang for “inauthentic.”

Albisu, a Washingtonian of Peruvian and Cuban descent, isn’t in the business of recreating Mexican classics. His new venture is no typical taqueria. Chef de cuisine Tom Hall works the line, and a cocktail menu boasts Amin Seddiq’s house-made horchata; both men are affiliated with Del Campo, Albisu’s upscale South American steakhouse. Anyone who has clamored ...
