Executive Chef/Partner Greg Daniels is expanding his menu of non-traditional gourmet tacos at taco asylum with the introduction of the falafel taco. The new taco will be added as the 10th taco in the restaurant’s line-up of offerings.
The newest addition to taco asylum’s menu features falafel, tabbouleh, spicy tzatziki, dates, and cucumber in a naan tortilla. The taco is priced at $5, and guests may enjoy the taco for $4 during Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. (all tacos are $1 off at those times).
“Since opening, we have introduced several tacos as limited-time specials, and the falafel taco is one that generated quite a response,” commented Chef Daniels, who noted that the restaurant celebrating its first anniversary earlier this year. “Because this taco has gained such a loyal following from those looking for an interesting and unique flavor experience, we decided to add it to our menu permanently.”
Chef Daniels’ menu focuses on a variety of cuisines, and utilizes seasonal, local, responsibly sourced ingredients. There are vegetarian options and all meats are humanely and naturally raised. Those unfamiliar with the concept should note that the “rice” features Israeli cous-cous with cilantro and lime, while his “beans” is a cold lentil salad with carrots, shallots, fennel, and garlic, in a red wine vinaigrette topped with chevre goat cheese.
The restaurant also offers more than 30 canned craft beers and six rotating draught options, and is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at The CAMP in Costa Mesa. For more information, address, and full menu: www.tacoasylum.com
