Dining out is a great way to give your oven a well-deserved night off after embarrassing it by making it stare at all those naked chickens. Get out of the kitchen with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Mexican Food
The menu spotlights twists on classic Mexican cuisine, such as the pad Thai chimichanga—a tortilla that’s filled with pad Thai noodles, crushed peanuts, and beef or chicken before being deep-fried and coated with peanut sauce ($7.99). Other creations include tacos with seasoned beef and ghost pepper pico de gallo ($3.50) and nachos smothered with queso, jalapenos, guacamole, and lobster ($13.99).
When it comes to Mexican food, Taco Fusion sticks to tradition: tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. But when it comes to what goes inside those classic dishes, all bets are off. Cooked right in front of diners, free-range and hormone-free game meat such as shark, yak, rattlesnake, scorpion, and gazelle flavor the eatery’s safari tacos. To complement those unorthodox proteins, cooks turn locally sourced veggies into ingredients such as cherry salsa and Asian slaw.
Game meats aside, Taco Fusion specializes in what The Tampa Tribune calls “comfort food…wrapped in a hard shell or soft tortilla.” General Tso’s chicken joins cabbage and peppers in the General Tso’s burrito, while bacon and A1 sauce add an extra kick to the filet mignon taco, which the Tribune lauds as “excellent.”
Feasts unfold amid Taco Fusion’s eclectic décor of surfing-themed artwork and Mexican wrestling masks, which diners can don before attempting to put the chef in a half-nelson until he shares his recipes.
