Indulge in Gourmet Mexican Fare at Retro Taco
April 5, 2019
Retro Taco pays homage to the past with a colorful mural splashed across its wall, depicting pop culture icons ranging from David Bowie to Wonder Woman. Its list of gourmet tacos, however, is anything but retro. When the taqueria opened in March, it debuted a menu of inventive modern tacos perfect for adventurous eaters.
Order a pair of the Braised and Confused tacos, stuffed with braised brisket, pico de gallo, pickled chiles, and fresh queso. Try the Funky Chicken, featuring a crispy waffle shell packed with fried chicken, bacon bits, and bourbon maple syrup. If you’re up for something extra unique, dig into the Hunny Buns, which are actually steamed bao buns with pork belly, pickled veggies, mint, and lime-jalapeno crema. The menu also includes classic street tacos filled with chicken, beef, or pork, and elotes—whole roasted sweet corn on the cob with a variety of fixings.
