The new taco joint in Lincoln, Como Se Taco, has given a unique twist on what a taco can be.
Opened on August 19th of this year, Como Se Taco is already a flourishing taco restaurant, with it’s small floorplan barely being able to contain the plethora of customers who dine there. When I went there myself, there wasn’t even a table to sit at and I had to bring my food to the neighboring Honest Abe’s to eat instead.
After stepping inside, it becomes clear quite quickly that this is no typical mexican cuisine restaurant. It has a trendy vibe along with modern tables and chairs. It might make people question whether or not the restaurant serves authentic Mexican food.
But their questioning would be warranted. With menu options including “Seoul Food” and the “Jamaican Sensation” it’s obvious their goal was not authenticity. But instead of being a drawback, this enhances the appeal of the restaurant. They are able to present a very unique menu, in the most delicious way possible.
Their unique menu includes 7 different tacos to choose from, combined with 4 different meat options. They also offer rice bowls and salads that you can use as a bed for your taco.
I ordered the “Seoul Food” taco with pork and “The Peanut Gallery” taco with chicken, which use Korean and Thai cuisine to inspire their ingredients. For those who are less adventurous, there is still the option of the “Plain Jane” which contains classic taco ingredients.
While their menu might seem limited, it helps that they offer more than just unique tacos. They also offer chips and salsa, with housemade corn chips and 4 different salsa options.
Their menu also contains 4 different drinks, with one of them being the classic Mexican rice drink, Horchata, but another one being Thai Iced Tea. It continues with the theme of having Mexican drinks, but they also have other unique drinks.
And for children who maybe are afraid to try any of the tacos, there is also a kid’s menu available for children 12 and under.
At Como Se Taco, you are able to enjoy a new and unique type of food, while still being able to eat local.
