I love tacos. Like really really love ’em. Thing is, as simple as they may seem to make, creating the perfect taco is a bit of a fine art (well to me at least). I recently tried out two Cape Town spots that have made taco making their speciality. The first is El Burro’s Taqueria on Kloof Nek road.
It’s super cute, as far as decor & overall vibe goes. It’s not very big & gets quite busy. They don’t do bookings, so you’ve gotta just chance it, or maybe go a little earlier to secure a table. But a really nice relaxed spot where you can enjoy tacos (of course) along with a few other snacky things.
On the food side we tried their guacamole with nacho chips (R45) & their ceviche (R50). Both really tasty…Miss K Kiss-o-Meter scale.
The 2nd spot was a newish place called Cabrón Taco Bar in Bree St (where the Easy Tiger burger bar used to be). As with the Taqueria, Cabrón is also quite small, but very cute with really cool, quite eclectic decor.Miss K Kiss-o-Meter scale. Also worth a mention is their Taco Tuesday special where if you buy 2 tacos you get 1 free…
So ja, both cool choices if you’re looking for a taco fix, BUT my best taco experience still has to be the fish taco at Motherland Brewers. Definitely need to go back to try that again.
El Burro’s Taqueria is open Monday to Friday from 12noon to 11.30pm & Saturdays from 10am to 11.30pm (closed on Sundays). Cabrón is open Monday to Wednesday from 11am to 8pm, Thursday to Saturday from 11am to 10pm (also closed on Sundays).
Go and get ’em! 😉
