A Pink Taco Den in South Beach
You can look pretty in it. You can be named it. And, most important, it's one hell of a hue to devour a taco in...
Introducing Tacontento, your new technicolor land of coal-fired tacos, soft-open now and fully open this Friday in South Beach.
First, let's address the decor. There's a lot of hot pink and turquoise for your eyes to absorb in here, so you might feel like you've stepped into a groovy burrito joint in San Francisco's Mission District. But you'd be wrong, because this spot is straight out of Latin America, the first US restaurant of a chain with similar places in Honduras, El Salvador and Brazil (nobody makes Mexican like the Brazilians).
Whether you're coming in with a date or just a hard-drinking, fuchsia-loving band of misfits, you'll want to head straight for the angel-presided bar and summon something tequila-y like a La Fuente de la Juventud (cucumber juice, cilantro, jalapeño and tequila).
That will set the stage for your platter of Tacos al Pastor, full of pork that's been marinated in a spice blend and slow cooked over an open coal fire for a smokier flavor.
We are a big proponent of clean coal technology.
