Join me and my local foodie friends as we celebrate Tacotopia 2017 in San Diego. Taking place May 13th in Golden Hill Park, this is the 3rd annual Tacotopia event hosted by The San Diego Reader.
You’ll want to fast for a few days before indulging in this ultimate taco taste test since there are over 50 of the finest taco venders from San Diego, LA and TJ in attendance. Here are just a few of my personal favorites:
Bull Taco provides customers with a unique and progressive Southern California experience. They source the exotic meats and seafood from around the world & from local purveyors. TACO EXPERIENCE!!!
Beautiful restaurant in Tijuana known for it’s amazing seafood. Have not visited TJ before? Come on down and try the Red Snapper with a great view. Fresh tuna, tacos and tostadas. http://bit.ly/2gRsKsJ
TACOS, TUNES, & TEQUILA… that’s what we’re all about. We’ve always envisioned La Puerta as a hangout for people who want to be treated with a high level of hospitality while enjoying quality Mexican food and drinks in a fun atmosphere. Our Sinaloa inspired family recipes demand we make nearly everything on the menu fresh daily and we never use artificial flavorings or enhancers. Our specialty drinks are made with the freshest ingredients and juices. We squeeze every lime, and while it may take a few minutes, we strive to make a damn good drink that delivers maximum refreshment. Whether you’re enjoying our Carne Asada tacos or our fresh-squeezed margaritas, you will be shown sincere appreciation for your business and a genuine good time. http://www.lapuertasd.com/
Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop was established on January 2008 in Mission Hills, San Diego. We are three brothers (Jose Luis, Maurilio, and Diego Rojano-Garcia, with mother “B” in the kitchen making the salsas) born in Mexico and raised in San Diego. We are dedicated to doing business in a style and in a store whose decor represents the same vibrant, high spirits of its namesake wrestling tradition, while serving up fresh, delicious Mexican food. http://www.tacosmackdown.com/
Puesto successfully mixes a casual attitude with an original twist on Mexican street food, knows the true meaning of fresh. Every made-to-order, gourmet taco, bowl and salad is prepared fresh. http://eatpuesto.com/
Everyone who attends the event will have the opportunity to sample tacos and ultimately decide who will win the Best Taco at Tacotopia 2017! There’s music, drinks, San Diego sun and, of course, TACOS. What else could you possibly need?!
While you eat your weight in tacos and enjoy the sunshine, there will be live music from some of Tijuana’s best bands and a cash bar with beer, margaritas, and more! All proceeds from the cash bar will benefit The Greater Golden Hill Community Development Corporation.
