This taco will leave you tongue tied.

Taco of the Month

When we had our team huddle about future tacos of the month, we didn’t intend that a tongue taco would be our February taco of the month… or did we?

February's taco of the month - the Lengua Taco.

February’s taco of the month – the Lengua Taco.

Either way, we present to you the Lengua Taco filled with grilled beef tongue in a red chile barbacoa sauce with avocado salsa and pickled red onions.

Our lengua taco preparation begins by traditionally braising the whole  tongue for about four to six hours. The lengua is then marinated in a house made red chile sauce that is similar in taste to a barbacoa sauce. It is then sliced and grilled. The lengua is topped with our avocado salsa and pickled onions.

In case you’re still confused, lengua means tongue and before you exit out of this page, lengua tastes just like beef but better. It’s absolutely delicious!
