The Local Culinary, a recently launched virtual restaurant concept, has debuted el Taco Loco. As one of South Florida’s first chef-driven delivery-only restaurants, el Taco Loco is serving classic and playful interpretations of authentic Mexican fare. The menu incorporates unique, high-quality ingredients, such as truffle cheese and seaweed, in its more contemporary dishes, while also featuring “Old School” tacos with fresh and flavorful components.
“Inspired by Mexico’s famous street food, el Taco Loco is bringing bright, crave-able tacos to downtown Miami,” said Alp Franko, founder of The Local Culinary, which operates el Taco Loco. “We set out to create an amazing delivery experience with this cutting-edge concept, and tacos are truly unlike any others in the market. We are offering delicious food that is easily transportable and great for lunch, dinner or a snack.”
One of the newest “virtual restaurants” on the scene, operated out of The Local Culinary’s innovative commissary-style dark kitchen in Downtown Miami, el Taco Loco’s offerings are strictly available via delivery apps, including Postmates, DoorDash, UberEats and Grubhub. Entrees range from $7.50 to $14.95, and provide locals with new and exciting twists on the classic tacos.
Popular options include:
• The signature carne asada tacos have instantly become a best-seller, featuring a blend of prime steak with fresh cilantro, lime, white onion and queso fresco.
• The “Made in Tulum” tacos have a flavor combination of truffle with swiss cheese and steak.
• Seafood-enthusiasts can try the blackened shrimp tacos filled with Asian slaw, cilantro garlic sauce, sesame seeds, seaweed and lime.
• “The Gold Chicken” tacos are truly one-of-a-kind, with crispy chicken, tomato salsa, guacamole and a touch of edible gold leaf for added decadence.
To complement its taco menu, el Taco Loco features house-made salsa, guacamole and “secret sauce” alongside Mexican sodas made with cane sugar.
