CityPages raises a good point: When’s the last time you took a break for Taco Tuesday?
If it’s been a while, you’re in luck! In downtown Minneapolis, executive Chef Gustavo Romero is bringing Taco Tuesday back to Mercy Bar and Dining Room for special Tuesday evening pop-ups. Per CityPages: “Using heirloom corn direct from Mexico, chef Romero crafts house-made tortillas, hand-grinding the corn to make tortillas for the specialty tacos. Four variations are available: a seasonal fried fish, chipotle chicken, pork confit, and steak, all available a la carte and uncoursed. Supplementing these are a “Latin-inspired soup,” quesadillas, and an assortment of vegetable sides, many of which are drawn from Romero’s own family recipes.”
And did we mention….crickets are on the menu?? Romero is using 3 Cricketeers crickets in a variety of delicious dishes! One standout is the Tlayudas, also known as “Mexican Pizza.” It is topped with nixtamal, beans, chorizo, quesillo, and chapulin (our locally harvested 3 Cricketeers crickets!)
Reservations are recommended, as the Takeover is in the Library Bar (a slightly smaller space). You can share the event with your friends using this Facebook link. Tuesday Takeovers are EVERY single Tuesday from 6:00-pm-9:00pm.
Hope to see you soon: We’ll be the people face-deep in tacos, with margaritas and crickets in hand!
