Chef’s Rec: Tacos Aqui

To celebrate the return of our Chef’s Recommendation, we boogied down to Bumbak for a hyped feed at Tacos Aqui!

Having only opened its doors a year ago, Tacos Aqui have quickly established a name for themselves, serving up fresh authentic Mexican food inspired by their ties to bordering state Arizona, through a select and well-crafted menu. From quesadillas to burritos, tacos and even tacookies (Yes, actual god sent taco cookies), these are our best picks!

Pescado Taco (35k ++)

We started with a classic Pescado taco, a customer favorite featuring beer battered fresh fish, jicama slaw, pico de gallo and a drizzled touch of coriander lime mayo on top of a warm home made corn tortilla. Perfection? We think so – From its beer batter crunch at first bite, to its well-balanced and fresh flavor –it’s safe to say that the Tacos Aqui Pescado taco is on our top 3 favorite fish tacos on the island!

Carne Asada (40k++)

On to the Carne Asada – a flavor packed taco featuring sautéed sirloin, coriander, red onion and salsa taquera. The sirloin is tender and flavor packed with its simple seasoning of salt, pepper and chimichurri – it’s also seared and grilled to grip an awesome charred taste!

Rendang Burrito (90k++)

Get ready for some mean, mouth watering Indonesian – Mexican fusion with Tacos Aqui’s Rendang Burrito! The Rendang Burrito is a menu special that incorporates one of Indonesia’s most treasured beef dishes in to a Mexican medley of coriander rice, sweet corn and jackfruit. The beef is marinated for 2 days then simmered for hours in chilis, garlic, onion, coconut milk and spices, and finally wrapped in a toasted homemade tortilla. Be sure to add a touch of their smoked pepper salsa that was especially made for this dish! A knockout, tender and hearty special.

Tacos Aqui have you sorted with their generous weekly specials, with 60k Margarita Mondays , 25k Taco Tuesdays, Wednesday quiz nights, F*cked up Fridays with free tacos with every Margarita purchase and lastly their Sundays where their chefs fuse together local favorites such as babi guling and ayam betutu into tacos! Talk about a treat!

All in all, Taco’s Aqui is an awesome place to catch up with friends and transition into the new normal.
