The Dubai girl's guide to International Taco Day

When your head says gym, but your heart says tacos
The Dubai girl's guide to International Taco Day
Shell yeah!

We went totally loco when we heard about today’s festivities. So let’s taco about it…

October 4th is International Taco Day and we're a tiny bit excited. Soft or hard shell, juicy steak or a crispy fried fish, guac or no guac (let's be real... always guac) tacos are a crowd pleaser for very good reason. So we've rounded up the best taco joints in the city for you and your gang to enjoy on this most auspicious of days...

La Carnita, Intercontinental Hotel, Dubai Marina 

Hailing from the streets of Toronto, this newbie on the scene is making serious waves. Serving up some of the city’s best Mexican with specialties like the street corn and the trio dip... but it’s the tacos that keep us coming back for more.

Poco Loco, The Beach, JBR

It’s as authentic as it gets here at this hot spot known for its mouth-watering tacos. Taking its inspo from countries like Peru, Mexico and Venezuela, this Latin American restaurant won't fail to impress.

And get this- any visitor that walks in with an avocado today will receive complimentary guacamole and tacos! 

Loca, Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa, Jumeirah

The name says it all. This DXB favourite will have you going crazy for its tacos, but another must-try is its fresh guacamole made right in front of you before moving quickly into your belly. Food comas are guaranteed.

Tortuga, Madinate Jumeirah, Jumeirah 

With seven types of tacos to choose from (count 'em), you’re spoilt for choice here at this Madinat Jumeirah joint. Living by the motto of “mi casa es su casa” you truly feel at home when you walk through those doors and are welcomed by a mariachi band. We don't know about you, but we always have one of those tucked away in the living room...
