Wapo Taco‘s roots go back to 1962 when their first Taqueria opened its doors in Mexico City with their pioneer charcoal grilled tacos. The famous Tacos al Carbon, which were their original creation, have now become the culinary staple of Mexico City. Their new concept was born to address the limited offering of authentic Mexican taquerias around the world. Considered the pioneers of charcoal grilled tacos, and concerned about the world’s mistaken perception of Mexican food, we decided to set the record straight and bring a piece of Mexico City’s genuine flavor to Miami at Wapo Taco. Now Wapo Taco opens their second location at Coral Gables. Here is more information about Wapo Taco :
According to Miami.com :
“Among the menu highlights: Guacamole con chips or chicharrónes (fried pork skin) – a family recipe of smashed avocado with cilantro, chile, tomato and lime served with tortilla chips or freshly fried pork chicharrón; pork or chicken tacos Pastor, the classic ‘al pastor’ made in its traditional form of marinating meat in a mixture of dried chiles, spices, almonds and achiote spice, slowly roasted and sabered from the spit grill into warm corn tortillas, topped with onion, cilantro and juicy pineapple; Campechano – grilled skirt steak, stewed chorizo and chicharrón with house salsa especial; La Bomba – grilled cactus, chorizo and melted manchego cheese with guacamole, pico de gallo and Mexican crema; and the Wapa – warm pita bread stuffed with steak and melted manchego cheese and served with a side of guacamole. Musi plans a Monday-Friday Happy Hour from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. with two-for-one beers as well as a late-night In the Biz Happy Hour featuring the same.” written by Lesley Abravanel.
According to New Times :
“In anticipation of the Gables location, Musi has reworked the restaurant’s menu, which features classic dishes, tacos, and more than a few surprises. Cebollitas preparadas ($5.99) is a simple dish of grilled spring onions with lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, Maggi seasoning, and salt. The spring onions have a subtle flavor and won’t fill you up for the meal ahead. The gringa ($10.99) features pork or chicken al pastor atop twin flour tortillas, topped with onions, cilantro, and pineapple. The meat is shaved to order from the chicken and pork spinning on twin spits behind the bar. Three flautas (taquitos) ($7.99) are filled with chicken or cheese and topped with cojita cheese, Mexican sour cream, and shredded lettuce. The flautas are served with a side of house-made guacamole.” written by Laine Doss.
According to Yelp :
“My co-workers and I had been anticipating Wapo Taco’s opening for a while now and we’re SO glad it met our high expectations. There was a short wait since it just opened this week but it was well worth it! I ordered the Gringa but I failed to read that the tacos came with flour tortillas. In my book, a taco isn’t a taco without corn tortillas, luckily the server was nice enough to serve me some on the side 🙂 Other than that, I have no complaints. I had a chicken and pork taco and I must say those are one of the tastiest tacos I’ve EVER had…like ever. I also ordered an Horchata which was refreshingly delicious. I hope that the quality and great service remains as great as it is.” written by Alexandra G. (Rated 5 stars).
