Taco Local is a very tiny Mexican restaurant located at Panglima Polim 5 ,just across Loubie Lobster/Holy Gyu. It was so tiny that I’ve missed it on the first time passing by the street. Although it looks small from the outside, the inside is actually quite spacey.I love their presentation on the Mexican and Boho vibe, it mirrors the aunthentic Mexican menu they serve here. Overall the dishes are good and very recommended for you who’re longing for a real taste of Mex food in Jakarta.
Taco Al Pastor (Single/Double IDR 34.000 / 60.000) : Soft tortilla tacos with grilled pork shoulder, pickled cabbage, salsa fresca, salsa verde and grilled pineapple. The pork was nicely marinated with sweet and tangy sauce,really good.And the bits of crunchy pineapple pieces added the flavor.
Tostadas Pollo (IDR 34.000): Fried and stacked tortilla with Cumin chicken,frijoles, cheese, salsa fresca and guacamole. Yummy tortilla, generous toppings too.
Burrito Elote (IDR 50.000): Chipotle corn, dirty rice, frijoles, salsa fresca, guacamole and cheese wrapped in a toasted and steamed flour tortila.This one was okay but lacked the refried beans that is essential to a Burrito.The flavor was also kind of bland.
Quesadillas Carnitas (IDR 34.000): Roast pork, salsa fresca,coriander and cheesd, toasted in a flattened flour tortilla.I’m a fan of this dish.The tortilla was so soft, the filling was perfect and delicious.
