Taco Fix – Time for a Taco Party!
Want something crunchy, meaty and cheesy for your office parties? Then a Taco Party might be something you need!
So how’s my tagline? Just kidding… I’d like to share with you a new food venture that I just heard a few weeks ago… taco delivery! This was the brainchild of Rafael General who has been quietly selling tacos at the Legazpi Sunday Market for a while now and he thought, “instead of the customers coming to us on a weekly basis; why don’t we go to them instead?” Thus… Taco Fix was born!
Currently, the delivery service is still in its infancy stages (e.g can only deliver to Alabang, Las Piñas, Sucat, Bicutan, Parañaque, Pasay, Makati, Pasig so hooray for people from the South) but their Tacos are already in their prime!
Rafael was kind enough to demo to us on how they create a tacos. He brought his home-made taco shells, grated cheese, meat sauce, salsa and shredded cabbage then turned them into his taco creation.
Well, you can only see the cheese on top because I don’t have the mad skills to
bite slice it in half without everything falling off. But in the case that it does happen to you, you can still convert it into a Taco Salad instead!
Just pour everything on your plate and do some tossing!
So how does it taste? Well, I loved the cheese as it was the first thing I was able to taste. The meat sauce nor salsa wasn’t spicy but it was a bit sweet (like Filipino style spaghetti sauce). Each bite is followed by a crunch from the taco-shell and as you reach the middle layer, expect those crunch to double as the shredded cabbage join in! Think of this as tacos customized to the Filipino taste.
It is best to eat it sideways (careful on spilling though) so that you can taste all the ingredients or if you are lazy like me, convert it into a taco salad. I’m not sure if this was all in my mind but I feel that one taco isn’t enough and I could probably eat two or three but if it is already in taco salad form, it is more than enough.
As for their delivery service, each taco order comes with an empty taco shell and a pre-mixed ingredients so all you have to do is to pour it into your taco.
I was torn between convenience vs the experience to create my own tacos which I also suggested to Rafael. Well, I just hope that in the future, the latter option would be available as they are still testing the waters. The only difference I noticed between the freshly made tacos and the pre-mixed ingredients would be the crunchiness of the cabbage as it got soaked.
It is certainly a unique concept outside of the usual pizza and pasta office deliveries so I’m looking forward to its success and on seeing it on our own office parties.
