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.
