This place definitely ranks as one of my favourite places! They’ve got the most magnificent margharitas, the most fantastic food and an amazing atmosphere to match. I’m not a big fan of Amigos in North Hobart as I find the place a bit crammy and the food’s not very nice. Here, at Tacos, there’s plenty of room to move around, wide open spaces, and comfortable lightings to make you feel at home and relax.

My favourite margharita is the passionfruit. There’s this colourful one which looks really nice but does not taste good! :p I’ve tried the Sangria there before and it’s not too bad if you like wine punch. For those who do not know what sangria is, it’s a wine punch typical from Spain and usually consists of red wine, chopped/sliced fruit, any sorta sweetener like orange juice, spirits and carbonated drinks like lemonade. I’m not a big fan of red wine (like most females, I’m a white wine girl) so it wasn’t exactly what I’d order regularly. But, I do want to pay a visit to the Latin American countries, in particular Spain, sometime in the future so as to taste authentic sangria and sangria blanca (white wine based sangria).

The food there’s fabulous! Most dishes come served on a sizzling hotplate. Almost every time, we’ll order a nachos with the lot (cheese, salsa, sour cream and guacamole) to share for starter. Imagine mountain of nachos topped with salsa and melted chesse with 2 large dollops of sour cream and guacamole at the side…oooo….YUM! :p I always go for the Spicy Prawns for my mains. It comes sizzling on a hot plate with onions and capers and with a mandarin salad in a tacos shell and buritos. We’ve also had the beef and chicken fajitas and those were good as well. We’ve never tried dessert there before because we’d be full to the brim after mains.

I highly recommend this place for those wanting to have a couple of drinks accompanied by quality mexican food. Remember to make a reservation or else you might be bitterly disappointed.
