Baja Crispy Fish Taco: Beer-battered Atlantic haddock topped with pickled cabbage, spicy escabeche, and homemade roasted poblano mayo - GET IT
A huge piece of fish that stayed crispy even through delivery. And all of the toppings added great flavors and textures. 

Black Bean & Sweat Potato Taco: A mix of refried black beans & roasted sweet potatoes topped with queso fresco and slightly spicy dried chile salsa - GET IT
Seemed like an unlikely combo for a taco, but it was great! So full of flavor and very hearty. 

Guacamole Con Totopos: Guac with homemade Vista Hermosa tortilla chips - GET IT
Their chips and tortillas are made on-site and are sold wholesale...and it's easy to see why. The chips with guac were fantastic and a good-sized portion. 

Corn Esquites: Sweet corn sliced from the cob with cotija cheese, smoky homemade morita mayo & spicy chili pequin - FORGET IT
I've had good esquites from Tacombi before and I've had great esquites from other restaurants. This time, they used canned corn, which was a huge disappointment. So much of the flavor comes from the grilled/charred corn cut off the cob. 

Carne Asada Burrito: Steak with a cauliflower coleslaw mixture - GET IT
The beef was tender and flavorful, and the tortilla was great.
