Best of Canberra – Tacos

By Bec Cuzzillo - 3 March 2015 11

It’s Tuesday and my favourite thing about this day of the week is the humble taco. 

If you are not yet aware of the phenomenon that is Taco Tuesday, it is time to get acquainted. There are a number of institutions in Canberra where you can find cheap tacos to brighten up this mid-week evening. Whatever your opinion on Mexican food outside of Mexico might be, I very much want to be friends with whoever the alliterative genius was that came up with Taco Tuesday.

In my opinion, Tuesday or not, you can’t really beat a good taco (or five) any night of the week.

This week, I’m on the hunt for Canberra’s best tacos – where do you get yours?

What’s Your opinion?

Beach Burrito Boiii

Yep +1 for Honkytonks. Beats the Ikea vibe at Beach Burrito. Guzman is great for hangovers though.

I am watching this one closely as I feel it is a little sad that I get my taco fix from Guzmen y Gomez. BUT THEY ARE SO GOOD!! Hoping there is a better option out there.

This, exactly. I love Guzman y Gomez, but as delicious as the food is, there has to be a place in Canberra that can do better tacos than a chain restaurant.

It is unfortunate but that is the case. I’m a fan of Honkytonks tacos but they are not a mexican/texmex restaurant which seems impossible to find locally, or at least one that has food worthy of the title.

Elk and Pea make yummy tacos, and I’ve heard good things about Honkeytonks offerings, although I haven’t sampled them myself.

This discussion makes me sad, as it reminds me of how grim the Mexican Food situation has been ever since Malibu Mex changed hands all of those years ago. Sigh.

Oh this is a delicious topic! The crispy chicken tacos at Elk and Pea in Braddon are by far my favourite, closely followed by their mango salmon tacos. So good.
