Weekending can be hard. Sure, it seems fun at first – go out, drink with friends, have fun, blah blah blah… but the options can be overwhelming. Expensive. And not always, let’s face it, that great. So let me offer a VERY simple, yet sophisticated, solution – to this conundrum. Head to your nearest Bartaco. There are plenty of locations to choose from, and you can click HERE to find one that suits your travel radius. Once you’ve arrived, settle in on the patio. Chances are, if you found one, you’re on the east coast, and we have been promised the sort of gorgeous sun drenched weather this weekend that practically makes it a crime NOT to sit outside to dine. And drink. And what do order? Why, glad you asked.
The Bartaco taco-to-mouth delivery system is almost fiendishly simple. Just take your handy write in menu, and your small golf pencil, and scribble in your choices. You can start small, go big at all at once, grab a quick bite, or linger if you wish (we won’t go into details of how long our last experience lasted… just relax and settle in, no one is going to rush you if you’re not ready… um, we promise. based on personal experience). Once you’re comfy, we recommend the Smoked Marasca:
(sunglasses optional but if you’re settling in for some serious day drinking – a plus)
Have you successfully completed step one? Is it smoky, yet fruity, mysterious, and delicious? Congratulations! Let’s proceed to step two:
Do you see the arrow in the right hand corner, pictured above, plus “bar taco secret” below? That is crucial in the two step dining/drinking/sun worshipping Bartaco experience. For this, my friends, is the Bartaco SECRET taco. Not listed on their menu, not available without knowing to ask. And right now, it happens to be a most magical combination of buttery fresh lobster, balanced with pozole (fresh Mexican corn kernels) and just a hint of fresh chopped parsley, which will leave you with the mouth feel of a lobster roll, but the pleasurable textures and flavors of a taco. Just a couple bites and there you have it. Late summer is served. So don’t miss out on our crucially short patio season, or this crucially limited taco. Just go. Use my two step method. Repeat as necessary and let me know what you think. And follow Bartaco on Instagram for sneak peaks of secret tacos yet to come.
Bartaco invited me in to review and try their secret taco, but all opinions are my own.
