Though it specializes in tacos, Pico Taco is anything but traditional. A modern interior with simple wooden tables, rough brick, and a colorful wall covered in words such as "sashimi" and "wasabi" fits with the kitchen's unique Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine. The menu begins with classics such as Oaxacan chicken mole and alambre, Mexican-style skewers of meat and vegetables. All the tortillas are made with corn and flour. And yet, it's the fillings that make each taco and burrito unique: smokey, tomato-based chicken tinga, baja-seasoned Alaskan fish, Japanese-style garlic-soy marinated chicken, and Korean barbecue beef, among others. To add an extra kick, six styles of regional Mexican salsas ranging from mild to hot are served on the side or poured into every drink.
