Welcome to tacoshop
tacoshop is a casual, modern taqueria that pays homage to all the latino flavors that Chef Lucas Manteca loves. The menu takes its inspiration from Oaxacan cuisine, but that’s just where our journey begins. It also traces back to Chef’s Argentinian roots for empanadas, zips to Peru for ceviche, and back home to USA for a southern inspired chicken & collards taco.
Everything is scratch-made with fresh ingredients: from our made-daily tortillas, to the slow-roasted brisket; no canned beans here! We like to think of tacoshop as slow food for fast people. Grab and go if you’re in a hurry, or hang a while on the outdoor patio; that's where we'd sit and dunk the addictive Birria tacos. Deanna has created a bright, happy space that’s equally modern-casual, yet 70’s Cali-cool at the same time.
Mexico has a rich and varied culinary heritage, with many regional differences. We have mad respect for authentic Mexican food, but tacoshop is authentic only to how we love to eat: a modern and creative fusion of ingredients and flavors, so don't be surprised to see, for example, a Hawaiian poke bowl with Mexican influences! We think you'll love it too.
It’s a little taqueria, a lot snack bar, and it caters to all appetites—yes, vegetarians too. From our crowd-favorite street corn to our soon-to-be-fav yucca fries, this is food you'll want every day of the week.
Everything made from scratch taqueria by James Beard nominated Chef Lucas Manteca
