Once upon a time, Kokopelli Chicago was a taqueria on wheels. The portable cart's tacos, ceviche, and made-from-scratch salsas were so tasty and authentic, though, that the team soon graduated to a less ephemeral home. Below, some highlights of its brick-and-mortar incarnation.
The namesake god: the eatery is named after Kokopelli, the Hopi god of fertility and mischief.
The chef: chef Guillermo "Oso" Campos Moreno has delighted diners in Mexico, the Netherlands (at an eatery with a Michelin star, no less), and, of course, in his family's kitchen.
The tortillas: before the tacos are made, each tortilla is lightly toasted on a mesquite grill to ensure that tacos crunch when you or the dog you're playing frisbee with bite into them.
The Pirates of the Caribbean reference: the signature taco, dubbed the Kraken, brims with octopus marinated in Mexican pesto topped with avocado and cheese.
